ASK DR MILK TO SEND A LETTER...
We want to educate providers in the community who are giving "bad" advice. Our current letter only covers medications, anesthesia, and some BF basics. If you want us to contact them (we will not share any of your information) please complete this form. We will send a generic cover letter that they were identified as giving "non-evidence based" advice and resources to learn more. Thank you!
THIS IS NOT WHERE YOU ADD YOURSELF TO THE GROUP!
