Oh No… He won’t go…

Dr. Fred Daum can help treating your child with encopresis

Dr. Fred Daum

If your child struggles with encopresis (stool accidents), withholds stool, or refuses to use the toilet, we can provide professional and effective consultation by telephone.

Dr. Daum will speak to you every day to make adjustments in your child’s treatment based on your feedback. He is available for your questions or concerns 7 days/week.

Our professional consultant, Fredric Daum MD, is a board certified pediatrician and Pediatric Gastroenterologist with 45 years experience treating encopresis (soiling). We specialize in helping children who are unwilling or late to toilet train, withhold stool or have encopresis (soiling).

These are children for whom the usual methods of toilet training have not worked.

If you live in Nassau County, Suffolk County or Queens, New York, please call
Winthrop University Hospital for an appointment with Dr. Daum at 516.663.8399
