That’s why we offer personalized assistance in person, over the phone, and through a user-friendly online shopping experience.
How Should I Go About Getting Finding the Right Pediatrician for My Baby?
In its first year of life, your baby will grow and learn more than it will in any subsequent year of life. He or she will triple in birth weight and reach incredible milestones. To support that growth, you must provide plenty of care and attention from you and your pediatrician, so finding the right doctor and practice is important. There is a variety of ways to go about finding the best fit, but the following factors are things you may want to consider in your search:
- Which hospital is the doctor affiliated with?
- Do the doctor's hours suit your schedule?
- Does the office have weekend hours?
- What’s the wait-time to get a non-emergency appointment with the doctor?
- Are there separate waiting rooms for healthy and sick babies?
- How warm and helpful is the staff?
- How are payments, billing, laboratory charges, and insurance claims handled?
- Do you and the doctor have share priorities and opinions?
