  • I asked my OB. Then I interviewed his recommendations and went the my gut.

    I did my interviews around 34-36wks and my new pedi is the one who examined my baby's at the hospital

  • Before we left the hospital the doc asked us who ours was going to be an gave us a list of the ones in our area. We went with the one she had seen in the hospital I really liked her.

  • They were recommended by my Lamaze & Breast feeding class instructor. They also ended up being very close to my home too.

  • I go to the same office that I went to. Only one doctor is the same; but one of them is my former dr.'s daughter. They are a small, fabulous practice that trusts parents and does what is needed to help kids.

  • Easy. He came to check out my son the day before we left the hospital, we liked him, and have been going to see him ever since. Our clinic is associated with the hospital where I gave birth, so my OB was my delivery Dr. and the pediatrician onsite that day became our son's doctor.

  • Word of mouth if the best way to find a good pediatrician. People that already have kids can tell you what theirs is like, to me that is saying everything.

  • I asked my midwife and some friends at church who are similar in parenting and health issues. Then I met with a couple and chose.
