At what age did you or would you stop taking your child to a Pediatrician but rather your family dr.?
I know I was around 12 when I stopped going to the pediatrician but I see many older teens still going to our kids pediatrician. I love my kids ped.s and have no desire to change anytime soon. I was just wondering...

So does ours. I've seen teens drive themselves there. But the waitingrealm is really geared towards young kids so the older teens always look awkward and uncomfortable there.

My daughter stopped the Peditrician when her and I moved to California.  Because of the Insurance she began seeing a General Practicioner.

 Well I honestly don't know but I was thinking of taking her to my Doctor when she's about 9, 10 years old. Not really sure!

Our children just see a family doctor. DD has seen him since she was born a year ago. IDK It seemed like I had nothing but problems with pediatricians.

I really like our Pediatricians but if I didn't I would do the same.
