DrGreeneTired of googling questions about your child’s health only to end up on an
unhelpful message board? You may want to bookmark the website of local doctor Alan Greene at www.drgreene.com. Far from being just some doc with a url, he’s the Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at Stanford, attending pediatrician at Packard Children’s Hospital, and a Senior Fellow at the UCSF Center for the Health Professions (he’s also the pedes expert at WebMD).

He’s passionate about all things organic and helping parents raise children safely in our new and sometimes scary environment. He started his website in 1995 to reach an audience beyond his own patients, and now gets over 440,000 unique users a month. Dr. Greene and a stable of writers cover topics ranging from discipline to preventing eczema flare-ups naturally to cloth vs. disposable in short, easy-to-understand, yet thorough articles. You can even “visit” with the doc during one of his live chats where he answers questions.

The next one is scheduled for this Thursday, June 25, at 11:00 a.m.
