A Florida Mom claims that a pediatrician discharged her kids from his care when she hesitated answering a question about firearms in the home. The doctor has never expressly stated why the children are no longer welcome in his office, but the Mom is convinced it's because of guns in the home. She was given 30 days to find a new pediatrician.
According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, pediatricians are urged to inform parents about the dangers of guns in and outside the home and they recommend that they incorporate questions about guns into their patient history taking and urge parents who have guns to remove them from the home.
Doctors are not required by Law to see patients.
