Meet Cara Natterson, MD

Hi, I'm Cara Natterson. I am a pediatrician and mom of 2 great kids, 8 year old daughter and 6 year old son. I was in clinical practice for many years and left to become a full-time writer and a consultant so I've written 4 books, I have a couple more in the pipeline. I spend time with parents in my own office, helping to explain medical issues that their doctors just don't have time to go through in the office anymore. Medicine has really changed, things can be really rushed. When a family gets a diagnosis or hears about a new medicine, sometimes they don't have the chance to ask all the questions and that's what I do and it's a real gift. In my spare time, I love to go for my run, that clears my head. My favorite thing to do is just hang with my kids. The evening reading hour for me is precious when we all just pile on to a couch together and read. It's magic.
