Monday QOTD

Have you picked out & contacted the pediatrician you are going to use?

Yep... I'm good to go. I'm using the same one DD sees. I was worried that he wasn't accepting new patients but apparently that gets waived since DD is already his patient.

Sort-of. DS's pediatrician will be in the same practice as DD's, but I think I am going to switch to another doctor Smile

yes and no. I have one listed with my OBGYN that will see him at the hospital. I'll probably use that ped. for the few appointment, but I can't see myself driving 42 miles every time I need to take him or if he's sick. I haven't researched pediatricians in one of the closer towns yet....don't know if there are any actually. May just be family practices.

We don't use pediatricians here unless you have a problem usually. We just use our family doctors.

Yes, I interviewed a few and we settled on one. I was worried about that process, but it was easier than I expected.

Yes! LO will use the same family doctor as me and DS. I like him alot and did good with DS so I just figured it was easy to use him again. All the pediatricians around here are so busy and can barely get sick kids in same day. Our family doctor rarely has a wait and can get us in same day!

I am absolutely using the same one DS goes to. He is amazing! I cant ask for anything better. And when we have to go in for an "emergency", the other doctors are great too!

Yep. I got a referral from my OBGYN.

Yes, we are using the same Pediatrician team that we take DD to. They only accept newborns & they are great!

We got a recommendation from our birth class teacher and had an interview with that doctor. We really liked him and were happy with our choice until a friend had some negative things to say. Not I am second guessing our decision. :/
