Things to Look for When Choosing a Pediatrician
Good Reviews from Friends and Family
When you are looking for a Pediatrician for your little one, ask around. Check with family and friends and get their opinions on the Pediatricians you are considering. You can also check the Pediatrician's online reviews, Facebook, Google, etc. You may find a great deal of insight that way as well.
Experience in Pediatrics
Check the Pediatricians credentials. See how long they have been in this field. You may feel less comfortable with a Pediatrician that just started versus someone who has many years of experience.
A Caring and Gentle Demeanor
This is your child, you want to be sure whoever is caring for them has a kind demeanor and treats your little one with the care they deserve. You can call and make an appointment and just see how the Pediatrician you are considering acts around your child. Think of it sort of a like a job interview, only you are the hiring manager and the Pediatrician is the job candidate.
You and Your Little One Get Along Well with This Pediatrician
Above all else, you want to make sure you and your child like this person. Are they kind? Do they ask you how your week has been? Do they show a genuine interest in their patients? All of this matters. You should strive to find a Pediatrician that is truly passionate about what they do.
