An appointment with a pediatrician Thursday was a "big relief" to Katie Bauer, whose seven-month pregnancy with rare "momo" twins was at first confusing and then exhausting. "It's all behind them, these guys are doing just fine," Dr. Joseph A. Garcia said after he finished immunizing Nolan and Brooks Bauer, identical boys who developed in the same fetal sac, exposing them to dangers not encountered during most pregnancies. The boys were born Feb. 13. Babies like Nolan and Brooks have at least one chance in 10 of dying during the last weeks of pregnancy or the first month after birth — so Garcia's upbeat assessment at two months was an important milestone for the Perry Hall family.

An Ellicott City pediatrician is scheduled for arraignment Nov. 6 in Anne Arundel County Circuit Court on charges of tax perjury. Dr. Alfredo J.

Dr. R. Donald Eney, a longtime Baltimore pediatrician and allergist known for his gentle manner with children and tireless work with the poor, died of cancer Thursday at Edenwald nursing home in Towson. He was 79. Dr. Eney was known to generations of children who came to his offices in Towson for allergy shots or saw him as their primary physician. Careful to put his young patients at ease, Dr. Eney shunned the traditional white coat in favor of a disarming shirt and tie. "Of course, many were frightened when they came to the doctor," said his son Richard D. Eney of Towson.

Simply referring to Maria Trent, M.D., as a pediatrician is a bit like calling Barack Obama an executive. The Johns Hopkins Children's Center doctor's continuing achievements as a researcher, clinician, professor and advocate for adolescent health education brought her to the attention of Ebony magazine's editorial board, which named her in its December issue as one of the nation's 100 most influential African-Americans for 2013. She and her fellow honorees - including Kerry Washington, Magic Johnson, Harry Belafonte, Marian Wright Edelman and the aforementioned executive - were celebrated this month at New York's Lincoln Center.

It is a recommendation that is certain to cause huge family fights, followed by door-slamming, tears and covert attempts to subvert it. The American Academy of Pediatrics is recommending that parents limit their children's access to cell phones, the Internet and television, especially in their bedrooms and particularly after lights out.

As president of the Maryland chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics and its over 900 member physicians statewide, I am writing to express support for Dr. Jeffrey Cain's concerns surrounding pharmacy based clinics in your article, "The drugstore clinics debate" and their impact on patient centered medical homes. When children are seen in pharmacy based clinics, they are intrinsically not receiving the level of care provided by the child's primary care doctor. The medical home is best described as a model or philosophy of primary care that is patient-centered, comprehensive, team-based, coordinated, accessible and focused on quality and safety.

Your recent editorial, "County campaign against sugary drinks goes too far," is way off the mark. On behalf of the American Academy of Pediatrics Maryland Chapter and our almost 900 members statewide, I want to support Howard County Executive Ken Ulman for setting strong nutritional standards for the beverages sold on county property. Consumption of sugary drinks has been linked to obesity and the chronic diseases that are killing most Marylanders. Because of Mr. Ulman's actions, food and drinks served to young people by county departments in after-school programs, recreation and parks programs, in county parks and in county libraries will now be more healthy.

The parents of hundreds of victims streamed into a Baltimore law office, detailing abuse at the hands of a Delaware pediatrician convicted last year of sexual attacks on children. The Baltimore firm of Schochor, Federico & Staton helped negotiate a $123 million settlement for almost 900 victims — including about 100 from the Eastern Shore — who have come forward to claim a share of the compensation fund for Earl B. Bradley's victims. The pediatrician abused young patients in his office, sometimes videotaping the attacks.
