Finding a pediatrician can be a task in itself. If for whatever reason you are not as comfortable with your pediatrician as you had hoped, once you have the baby, feel free to change.

Your sweet baby can not voice its own opinion, so please, be her/his advocate and do what is best for your baby. You’ll get a gut instinct when you start going there for your appointments.

If you aren’t satisfied, switch providers. It’s not worth the stress or headache. You want the best care for your new bundle.

Take these questions and head on to the next pediatrician for the interview process. Don’t forget the top 18 pediatrician Interview Questions!

We had a difficult start at becoming new parents. Our oldest daughter (and second daughter) was diagnosed with MSPI and without the help of her pediatrician, I’m not sure we ever would’ve found out what was going on.

We owe her health to the awesome practice. They never blew us off or made us feel silly for asking things.

They took us serious and helped us find the answers. I easily could’ve over looked her symptoms and caused more health problems in the long run.

But, I went with my gut and talked to her Pediatrician about everything. Trust your gut!

Good luck and feel free to share other questions you asked!
