    Background Information 
    Professional profile:

    Dr Anthony Cohn is interested in all aspects of paediatrics, especially delivering sensitive, child focussed care. He is keen to involve children in their consultation as much as possible, and to restrict to the minimum the amount of investigations and treatments, which they have to undergo. He wants children to enjoy their visit.

    Dr Cohn also appreciates the anxieties and difficulties of being a parent. By working in partnership with families, He hopes to alleviate the child's, parents' and grandparents' fears and worries.

    He sees lots of children with a variety of different problems.

    Dr Cohn has a particular interest in constipation/stool withholding, soiling and wetting, and has published a book to help families deal with these conditions.

    Dr Cohn also sees many children with headaches, chronic fatigue syndrome and sleep problems.

    Personal profile:

    Dr Cohn spends most of his spare time with his family. He has three boys, all born on the same day, so he knows a lot about the great joys and challenges of parenthood. This means that his interests have to change with theirs. At present lego comes top of the list.

    Dr Cohn also enjoys activities that stretch the mind, especially reading. A series of minor injuries mean that the only chance he has of playing football and cricket for England is in his dreams.
