Help! I am 39 weeks pregnant and I need to choose a pediatrician for the baby. Any pointers on how to go about this. I have a print out of all the pediatricians in my surrounding area, but is there a place I can find out more about them?

I asked my obygyn if he had any suggestions. He gave the name and number of a great pediatircian in my area. I set up an appointment with him before my baby was born to make sure that he would be the right fit for my family. I asked questions at the meeting to find out about him. As it turned out he was perfect and my children now love to go see him. You might also check and see if some of the docs on your list hold semminars. The doc we see holds one about once a week. It is a great way to get a "vibe" and ask questions. Hope that helps :o)

I FOUND OUT THE HARD WAY UNFORTUNETLY,THERE ARE NOT MANY PEDIATRICIANS IN MY AREA AND I WENT WITH THE ONE CLOSE BY BECAUSE ALL THE OTHERS WERE HOURS AWAY. AND HE WAS TERRIBLE, HE NEVER LISTENED TO ME I GUESS BECAUSE I WAS YOUNG AND MY DAUGHTER WAS HAVING PROBLEMS WITH HER EARS AND HER BOWELS AND HE NEVER DID ANYTHNG AND THE NURSE GAVE HER ,HER SHOTS ONE TIME AND TOUCHED THE BONE AND I REFUSED TO TAKE HER BACK AND I FOUND ANOTHER DOCTOR ABOUT 45 MINUTES AWAY AND THEY ARE GREAT THEY CLEANED HER EARS OUT AND PUT HER ON MEDS FOR HER BOWELS AND SHE WAS ON THE MEDS FOR YEARS IT WAS SO BAD.I WILL BE TAKING MY BABY I AM CARRYING NOW TO THEM AS WELL. I FOUND THIS DOCTOR JUST BY ASKING AROUND AND HE WAS RECOMMENDED.

I asked all the other moms I could find. My parents asked around, too. It became clear quickly who the most respected doctors were. we kept hearing the same name, so we set up an interview. He was a perfect fit!
