Health Tip: Interview a Potential Pediatrician

Health Tip: Interview a Potential Pediatrician


(HealthDay News) -- Add "choosing a pediatrician" to the long to-do list for expectant parents.

The American Academy of Pediatrics says parents should ask the following questions when choosing a baby's pediatrician:

  • Does the doctor accept your insurance? What are the office hours? Is the doctor taking new patients?
  • How often should a baby see the doctor during the first year?
  • Which hospital does the doctor use? What is the doctor's preferred method of contact?
  • How much are office visits, immunizations and other care costs?
  • Is after-hours care available when your child is sick or when you have questions?
