Choosing a Pediatrician

Choosing a pediatrician is important.

When choosing a pediatrician, you might first start by finding one who is on your insurance plan and serving your area. You might also see ads or promotions for pediatricians that are accepting new patients. And of course, you’ll always discover recommendations from friends and family members. But really, the best way to find a good pediatrician is to actually set up an appointment and meet with a few.

And while the credentials of your new pediatrician are important, you really want a pediatrician who is good for you and your family. And most often, that comes down to how well your personalities and life philosophies fit together.

Some Questions to Ask

While there are many questions to ask a pediatrician, some specific questions to ask would be those that involve matters open for debate and opinion:

  • What is your philosophy on immunizations, discipline, potty training, prescribing antibiotics, etc.? Why or why not?
  • What is your opinion on alternative medicines, attachment parenting, co-sleeping, etc.? Why or why not?
  • Are you open for a second opinion from a specialist, if needed? Why or why not?

Interview Early

If possible, don’t wait until you’re pregnant to interview a doctor. And even if you already have children, it can still be a good idea to meet with a few doctors before choosing a new pediatrician.
