How To Choose the Right Pediatrician for Your Child?

Choosing a pediatrician is essential for your child's health. It's important to have a pediatrician you trust to provide your child with proper care. The doctors at Phoenix Pediatrics are here for you when you need a pediatrician in Phoenix, AZ.

Finding a pediatrician

If you're looking for a pediatrician for a new baby, your OBGYN may have some recommendations. You may also want to ask friends or neighbors about their experiences with doctors in the area. Think about if your doctor is located near your home or your daycare. Phoenix Pediatrics is conveniently located in Phoenix, AZ, with locations at 12th street, Camelback, Union Hills, and Tatum

When looking for potential pediatricians, you might want to consider who takes your insurance, who you've heard good things about, and what the doctor's credentials and experience are. Phoenix Pediatrics has been serving the Valley for 44 years. For some parents, it's important that the doctor is a parent themselves or believes in similar parenting philosophies. The best pediatrician for you will consider how you care for your child with their care plan.

Once you've done some research, a first appointment is the best way to see if the pediatrician is a good fit. We are doing our free "Meet and Greet" meetings via Zoom now during the pandemic. Please call to set up a meeting. For a newborn, some pediatricians will visit the new baby in the hospital if they are affiliated with the same hospital. We currently do rounds at HonorHealth Shea.

Your child's first Zoom visit

A first visit to the doctor helps determine if the pediatrician will be a good fit for you and your child. Take the time to ask your doctor questions. Ask about office hours and emergency appointments, and find out what hospital your child should be admitted to in an emergency.

It is vital for your child's health that they have a positive relationship with their doctor and visit regularly. Getting used to going to the doctor can ease the anxiety some people develop about seeing a doctor, and that only benefits your child for the rest of their life. At a first appointment, make sure your child is comfortable with the doctor, or see how the doctor interacts with your newborn.

Don't wait to choose a pediatrician and have a first visit! Come see the doctors at Phoenix Pediatrics and find the right fit for you and your child. Contact us in Phoenix, AZ, at (602) 242-5121.
