Choosing the Right Clinic

How in the world do you choose a primary care clinic for your child? We hope the following information will help you narrow down your search.

First, consider choosing a Pediatrician versus a family practice doctor. Pediatricians are specifically trained in children’s health.

Second, think geographically. Do you need a clinic that’s close to home, work or daycare? Somewhere in between?

Third, ask yourself what you consider most important? Same day appointments? Saturday appointments? Seeing the same doctor at each visit? Is after-hours care available?

Then, consider the clinic’s philosophy and feel. A lot can be said for that gut feeling that says ‘yes’ it’s a good fit, or ‘no’ this just doesn’t feel right.

And finally, talk to family and friends. If you’re new to the neighborhood, or just moved into town, try talking with other parents at school, work and home.

South Lake Pediatrics knows how important a good relationship with a Pediatrician is. So we invite you to schedule a free “meet you” visit at any of our clinics, with any of our Pediatricians or Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (CNPs) to see if we can be a good fit for you and your family.

 

Here is an additional article on how to choose a Pediatrician written by Dr. Tracy Hall that you may find helpful.
