Every Mom wants to have a good Doctor or Pediatrician for their Kids! Whatever sort of belief you have on vaccinations, medicines, or more, you always want to choose a Pediatrician nearby who you can trust.
Are you looking for a new Pediatrician?
Maybe you are pregnant and you are looking for one to care for your child after you give birth. Here are some good things to consider and questions to ask a pediatrician.
Things to Consider:
- Distance: You will want an office close to your house. When you have a sick child the last thing you want to have to do is drive far away just to get to the office. Make sure it’s reasonably close by.
- Parking/Getting Inside: There’s nothing worse than not being able to actually park at a doctor’s office. Do a drive by and see if there is adequate parking or how far the office is in the building. When you’re carrying a newborn or even a toddler, you want an easy in and out place!
When you’ve narrowed your search down go to some visits and schedule a tour and a meeting with the potential doctor.
They should allow a meeting after hours!
Here are some things to ask about.
Good Questions to Ask a Pediatrician
- Ask their credentials. Don’t be afraid to do this. A board-certified doctor will be certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
- Office Hours?
- Ask about after hours and what happens when you have a sick child when the office is closed.
- How long have they been in practice?
- Ask about their philosophies on things like breastfeeding, circumcision, sleep training, medicines
- What hospital are they affiliated with?
Check the office and waiting room area. Do they have a sick area and a well area? You do not want to be sitting by sickies when you are there for a well check!! Watch how the office staff handles other patients. Don’t be afraid to ask other patrons in the waiting room why they like that doctor.
Hopefully after taking these things into consideration and these questions you’ve asked you will find the right doctor for your family’s needs.
