When visiting a pediatrician’s office for a consultation, you should bring in a few questions to ensure you are choosing the correct pediatrician’s office for your child(ren) to attend. Setting up meetings face-to-face will provide you a better opportunity to get a better feeling of not only the pediatrician but also the office. A few questions you can ask includes:
How long have you been practicing medicine?
You may already have received this information from the pediatrician’s website, and if you have not, this is the time to ask.
What is your childcare viewpoint?
You want to get down to the fine details of children including breastfeeding, alternative medicine, circumcision, vaccinations, sleep, and discipline problems.
Do you have any children yourself?
While this answer may not matter to many, it may bring comfort to some that the doctor has children of their own, and may relate to certain issues, injuries, and illnesses.
Are you a part of a group medical practice?
If you end up going with a doctor who runs a solo practice, you will want to know who covers them when they are away on vacation, or sick. If they are part of a group practice, the same question would be asked, as you will want to know the background of the doctors who would be covering your child’s pediatrician.
How long do your typical check-up appointments last?
Depending on the clinic you are visiting, you will want to know how long they on average take per check-up appointment. Normally, it’s around 15 to 20 minutes, but if it is less, this may alter your choice to another pediatrician’s office.
What are the office hours of this location?
Do the office hours work with what you are available for?
How does your clinic handle emergencies?
You will want to know if they provide same-day walk-in visits for emergency visits, if they have after-hour emergency phone calls, and if not, what do they suggest.
Does this clinic have a call-in policy?
Many clinics will have a receptionist at the front answering questions, taking appointments, etc.
Do you offer house calls for families?
You may prefer a pediatrician clinic that provides house calls in case you have certain needs that need to be met with your family.
First things first, you will want to complete as much research on each pediatrician clinic as possible to ensure they will be a good fit for your family. Verifying the credentials of the pediatrician that is accepting new patients at the clinic to ensure they are medically trained and certified to provide medical pediatrician services. Ensure the pediatrician is available and easy to reach. If you cannot get appointments within the first week and your child is quite ill, the clinic may not be for you. Ensure you and the pediatrician fit, and click. If you do not feel comfortable with the pediatrician, it may be best to find someone you do feel comfortable with. Finally, during the consultation, you can see how the pediatrician interacts with your child(ren).
