Our concern is direct communication and cooperation with the paediatrician, to strike a careful medical monitoring of the child. For this reason, after each visit, and the paediatrician and parents receive information note sent by fax, e-mail or mail. Our effort is to practice the most modern, both diagnostic and therapeutic point of view, following reliable pub- lished studies and guidelines, even in collaboration with centres abroad, if necessary.
