Philip Sampson, an emergency department physician assistant with more than twenty years of experience, including in outpatient clinics in family medicine, internal medicine, and pediatrics presently living and working in California’s Central Valley, has completed his new book “Jimmy Goes to the Emergency Department”: an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, and caregivers preparing children for the inevitable emergency room visit.

Let’s face it, children hate needles! Shortly after a child is born, he receives his first vaccination. From the age of two months until the age four or five years, the child receives numerous vaccinations before entering kindergarten. Approximately 60 percent of well child health visits involve vaccinations. The vast majority of these are given by injection, which, of course, require a needle to administer. Kids are smart, even at a very young age. It doesn’t take them long to associate a doctor with the pain of a needle. It’s no wonder they start to fuss and fume when the doctor enters the exam room. Read this story and discover how five-year-old Jimmy Meserve deals with his fear of needles when he has to visit the local emergency department.

Published by Page Publishing, Philip Sampson’s engrossing book is a delightful addition to any home- or school-based children’s library.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “Jimmy Goes to the Emergency Department” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
