In this week’s “Office Hours,” acclaimed pediatric gastroenterologist Timothy Buie discusses probiotics and dietary fiber in the context of the many questions he receives from families at MassGeneral Hospital’s  Lurie Center for Autism. The Lurie Center is one of 14 specialty-care centers in the Autism Speaks Autism Treatment Network.

We invite you to send your related questions after viewing the segment. Dr. Buie will answer as many as possible in the “Office Hours Q&A” that we’ll post next Wednesday (Jan. 28).
