What to Know Before Seeing Your Pediatrician is an illustrative guide to educate parents on common pediatric topics to help reduce anxiety and prevent unnecessary visits to the doctor.

Written by a board certified pediatrician, What to Know Before Seeing Your Pediatrician covers the basic information that all parents should be aware of prior to taking their children to see a pediatrician.

The book includes simple guidance and color illustrations on key topics including the common cold, fever, vomiting and diarrhea, vaccines, ear and sinus infections, bronchitis, laryngitis, and many more.


Peter Jung, M.D., eagerly followed his father’s footsteps into pediatrics, and after receiving his board certification in pediatrics and becoming a Fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics in 2002, Dr. Jung went into private practice with his father. When his father retired in 2004, Dr. Jung opened the doors to Blue Fish Pediatrics. Today, Blue Fish Pediatrics has grown to include 13 providers in three Houston-area locations. Dr. Jung is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston, and enjoys teaching pediatric residents, medical students, and nursing students. He has written for several local magazines, has been interviewed by local and national news programs about pediatric issues, and has taught several pediatric classes geared toward equipping parents.
