Frequently asked questions (FAQ) about finding a pediatrician

A pediatrician is a medical doctor who specializes in the care of infants, children, and adolescents. They provide preventive care, diagnose and treat illnesses, and offer advice on growth and development.

If you’re looking for a pediatrician for your child, there are a few steps you can take to find the right one:

  1. Ask for recommendations: You can ask people you trust (friends, family members) for recommendations. You can also ask your primary care physician or OB-GYN for a referral.
  2. Check credentials: Once you have a list of potential pediatricians, you can check their credentials by visiting their websites or the websites of their practices. Look for information about their education, training, and certifications.
  3. Schedule a consultation: Before you make a final decision, it’s a good idea to schedule a consultation with the pediatrician. This will allow you to meet with the doctor, ask questions, and get a sense of whether they are a good fit for your family.

When choosing the best pediatrician for your child, there are several qualities to look for. These include:

  • Good communication skills: A good pediatrician should be able to communicate effectively with both you and your child.
  • Experience and expertise: Find a pediatrician that has experience working with kids of all ages and who has expertise in areas that may be important to your child’s health, such as allergies or developmental delays.
  • Accessibility: Look for a pediatrician who is accessible and available to answer your questions and concerns, whether by phone or email.

When choosing a pediatrician, there are several things you should ask to help you make an informed decision. These include:

  • What is your approach to preventive care?
  • How do you handle emergencies and after-hours care?
  • How do you handle referrals to specialists?
  • What is your philosophy on medications and immunizations?
  • How do you handle communication with parents?

It’s a good idea to start looking for a pediatrician before your baby is born. You can start your search during your third trimester of pregnancy. This will give you plenty of time to find a pediatrician who is a good fit for your family before your baby arrives.

Your child’s first appointment with a pediatrician will typically involve a few different things. These may include:

  • A review of your child’s medical history and any past illnesses or injuries.
  • A physical examination to check your child’s growth and development.
  • A discussion of your child’s current health, any concerns you may have, and any questions you may want to ask.

Be sure to bring your child’s medical records, immunization records, any relevant test results, and a list of questions or concerns you have with you to the pediatrician’s office.

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends regular well-child visits at the following intervals: newborn, 1 month, 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months, 15 months, 18 months, 24 months, 30 months, and every year thereafter.

Prepare a list of topics or concerns you have for the doctor ahead of time, be honest and open about your child’s health and behavior, and ask for clarification or additional information as needed.
