Dr. Chad PerlynMedical Director
Dr. Chad Perlyn, MD, PhD, is a Miami-based pediatric craniofacial surgeon and expert on plagiocephaly (flat spots). As the physician who treated Irene’s son, Lucas, Perlyn was the obvious person for Irene and David to turn to for feedback on their idea. Dr. Perlyn immediately identified with Turn Your Baby’s mission and was impressed by the design of the product, so he agreed to join the team as Medical Director and product champion.
