I like them to be respectful of my choices as a mother because we don't always adhere to the whole vax schedule, and we use herbal meds in our home. I don't argue with them, but I don't want them arguing with me either. I like them to talk TO my children as well as to me, not around the children and always directing things to me. Obviously as babies that isn't the same, but as they get older they know if they are being overlooked or addressed. Having a great answering svc when they aren't there is good. Not over-prescribing antibiotics is good, even though some will just give in to get parents off their backs. A separate area for well babies and sick children is a MUST. Until age 5 ours see the Dr for well checks in a completely different part of the bldg from the sick patients. I really have appreciated that.
