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.
