...fingernails grow nearly 4 times faster than toenails?

Desmond G. Rabinowitz, M.D.

Dr. Rabinowitz


"With more than 20 years in medicine, I have learned to engage my patients and their parents in conversation which is informational and educational for each of us. I like to take a low key approach with kids. I never lecture them, and I try to be as non-threatening to them as possible, giving them illustrations they can understand for their age level."

"As soon as they are able, I let the kids participate in the decision-making process about their health. In pediatrics, it's real teamwork-the child, his parents, and I, work together for the best interest of the child."
