Wouldn't it be great to have your own personal doctor on call, to answer all those scary, challenging and just plain weird parenting questions?

When we have questions about medical issues and childhood development, we turn to Dr. Debi Gilboa, aka Dr. G, a Pittsburgh-area family physician who has four boys of her own. She's always got the best advice and she's never afraid to give it to us straight. We love her compassionate but no-nonsense bedside manner.

So, we want to share Dr. G with all of you... as part of our TODAY Tastemakers team. She'll be chiming in regularly to offer advice and answer questions. Do you have an issue you'd like Dr. G to tackle? Let us know on our Facebook page!
