Finding a Pediatrician
Finding a pediatrician that you trust can be a daunting task for a new parent. Start looking asap (most first-timers start looking in their third trimester of pregnancy). And use these tips from the American Academy of Family Physicians:
Make sure you're comfortable around the doctor, and that you can speak with him or her freely.
Look for a doctor who answers your questions thoroughly and clearly.
Choose a doctor who spends time with you and doesn't make you feel rushed.
Evaluate factors such as office hours, insurance, affiliated hospital, and office location. Do all of these things work with your schedule and lifestyle?
