Dr. Udell has been practicing medicine for over 5 decades. He was the first pediatrician to present medical research utilizing computers to record data and to calculate infant intravenous support. With his partners in Pediatrix Medical Group, they advanced treatment for infants throughout the United States, providing a new, improved level of in-hospital care for high risk newborns. Their Neonatal ICU has been visited by celebrities such as Chris Everett and Audrey Hepburn. Dr. Udell has appeared on numerous talk show programs, such as Donahue, and has given testimony to the US Congress about children with birth defects, HIV, and drug addicted infants.
The newly emerging epidemic of Attention Deficit and Autism Spectrum disorders has inspired him to direct his training and practice to focus on problems with childhood development. Because there has been such an explosion of families who are affected by these challenges, he is in a unique position to help evaluate all of the available research and treatments, and to provide a combination of all of the proposed therapies so that his patients have the best chance to achieve their highest potential.
