We are William Sears, MD and Martha Sears, RN. Most folks just call us Dr. Bill and Martha.
After raising eight children and practicing pediatric medicine for more than 30 years, we have answered questions from thousands of parents. Millions more have sought our advice through our 40+ pediatric books, articles in parenting magazines, and our appearances on more than 100 television programs such as 20/20, Donahue, Good Morning America, Oprah, CBS This Morning, CNN, NBC’s Today Show and Dateline. How did all of this come about? Because we’ve always loved kids. That’s why this site is dedicated to the people who have taught us the most about pediatric care: our eight children – James, Robert, Peter, Hayden, Erin, Matthew, Stephen and Lauren.
For those of you who don’t know us, here is a brief overview of our credentials:
