In Reply.—I am sorry that Mcintyre considers my statement a slur. It was not intended to be derogatory.
He states that we all offer unique care to children; this is what I meant. Even within specialties, different individuals have different strengths and training backgrounds.
I am comfortable with my role as a pediatrician and with the unique contribution I make to the care of patients. I hope McIntyre is not insecure with his role as a family practitioner in his community.
