Dr. Risa Gorelick, MD

In my practice, I often encounter parents who are intimidated, uncomfortable, or simply too shy to ask their questions in the office. Others forget to ask a question during an appointment, or have new questions that arise after they've come in.

Ask Doctor Risa is a unique online resource for parents, providing access to clear and up-to-date information, and answers to questions in this ever changing landscape, enabling them to provide the best care for their children.


My goal is to work with parents, offering common sense advice about their newborns, adolescents, and teens, addressing concerns, and empowering them to tackle whatever pediatric issues they might have with confidence.
