Finding the right pediatrician starts with learning about their training
Finding the right pediatrician means finding a partner in the formative years of your child’s life. Board certified pediatricians are a great choice because they have been trained to foster the physical, emotional and mental development of children in a way that other medical professionals have not. By the time a pediatrician becomes board certified, he or she has graduated from college and medical school, completed a residency in pediatrics with at least 12,000 hours of caring for patients and has passed a detailed exam administered by the American Board of Pediatrics.
Questions are key in finding the right pediatrician
Finding the right pediatrician can be difficult. One of the best ways to narrow down your choices is to visit doctors’ offices and ask questions.
- How much time do you spend with the patient during a visit?
- Do you offer weekend office hours?
- How quickly will you see a sick child?
- Who will we see if you are out of the office?
- Are you affiliated with a local hospital?
- Will you coordinate our child’s healthcare if he or she needs to visit a specialist?
- How can we get in touch with your office if our child is sick after hours?
Open and honest communication allows your child’s healthcare team to succeed. The right pediatrician is someone who listens to your questions and provides the support to help your child achieve optimal health.
