Health Tip: Choosing a Pediatrician

By on December 10, 2019

Pediatricians are specially trained to treat children from birth through adolescence and into the patient’s young adult years, says the American Academy of Family Physicians.

To find a qualified pediatrician for your child, the American Academy of Pediatrics and HealthChildren.org can supply names of board-certified physicians in your area. Local medical societies and hospitals can also provide the names of doctors nearby.

After creating a list of doctors, call the office of each. Ask about the doctor’s background and general office procedures.

The AAFP also encourages you to create a list of key questions to ask the doctor before your child’s first appointment.
