Schedule a short interview.

No one can tell you the pros and cons of a doctor better than the parents. Therefore listen to what your friends say, let them recommend a pediatrician to which they take their children. Ask the mother in the waiting room for their
opinion on the pediatrician. The conversation alone will not let you know too much about the expertise of a particular doctor, but collected information can help in the assessment who would possibly be the best doctor for your child. Based on the experiences of other mothers you can learn if the doctor is patient, gentle, willing to listen and explain to you what you are interested in.

Availability

Ask how much available is the pediatrician, what are his business hours, can you call him on the phone for advice, whether he will come to you if there is an emergency with your child.

 Finances

If you choose a pediatrician who holds a private practice, check the price list of the services and the payment methods.

Understanding

If you are of modern understandings and committed to raising the child the natural way, then do not choose a
pediatrician who is old school and will advise things you may not agree with. Find a pediatrician with a similar view of the world as yours.
