Do you take your child/ren to a pediatrician or a family doctor?

We prefer seeing a family doctor..not for convenience or anything, it's just a preference for Our Son.

  • Family doc. My dd ped had no bed side manner so I chose never to return. They see a RN at my family clinic. She is great and helped me with things the ped was clueless about.

  • They see a pediatrician right now, but I would have no problem taking them to a family doctor.

  • My kids are way way older, youngest is in highschool. She goes to a ped and always has so have my other daughter and son when they were kids. But now I'm looking for a Family Doctor cause she's got asthma and needs continuity of care as an adult once aged out of our ped.

    I just can't find any near me though that are good. Your lucky you have a good Family Doctor. Wish we could get one.

  • Pediatrician. We don't have a family doctor at the moment. I was previously in the Navy so I saw the Navy doctors and haven't been to a doctor since I got out. Saw a midwife during my pregnancy.
