Podcast Pediatricians is co-hosted and created by Drs. Matt Gotthold and Rob Walter, two community pediatricians who are friends, competitors and affable antagonists. Despite the exhaustion of battling insurance companies and 3 am phone calls, we LOVE practicing pediatrics. We are front-line pediatric caregivers who, between us, see hundreds of patients per week. We are truly independent voices. We sign our own paychecks. With over 50 years of combined pediatric experience, we are eager to share what we know and think with anyone with an interest in understanding and promoting the well-being of infants, children, teens, and young adults. Our intended audience includes savvy parents, and pediatric caregivers of all stripes: nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, family docs, residents, medical students, and our fellow pediatricians. Our conversational tangents may frequently be wide-ranging, often encompassing popular culture and a few rants, but we always try to bring things back to what this podcast is primarily about: the health of children and their families.

Sleep -by MG
Great start Guys! Love the conversation and the content!
A little too long. Would suggest no longer then 30 minutes. Remember pediatricians and parents do not have much free time.
Looking forward to listen next episode.....
Two pediatricians in practice, chatting and rambling about their favorite topics. They're well-spoken, well-read, experienced and enthusiastic. Very good quality audio, so it's not difficult to listen to. Can't wait for the next installment!
Information-packed and funny at the same time. Great job!
