Certain Parents Less Likely to Follow Doctors' Advice: Poll

MONDAY, March 25 (HealthDay News) -- Only one-third of American parents with young children always follow the advice given by their child's doctor, a new survey finds.

Thirteen percent said they follow such guidance only occasionally, and 56 percent said they almost always followed recommendations from their child's doctor, according to the University of Michigan Mott Children's Hospital National Poll on Children's Health.
