Finding the right pediatrician is often a challenge. It’s important to find someone who will make you comfortable and who will be reliable and reassuring. Here are some tips for finding a pediatrician who will fit your needs and help you as you raise your children.
1. Location: Certainly, if you have a few children, you’ll be seeing the pediatrician often. Make sure to select someone whose office is not too far away. This will also help when a child is sick and you want to get to the pediatrician quickly.
2. The Whole Practice: Just because you love your pediatrician doesn’t mean that you love his co-workers. In most pediatric offices, you have to see other doctors in the practice at times in addition to your own pediatrician. For this reason, make sure that you like the other doctors in the practice and ask to meet a few of them before making up your mind.
