I'm pretty sure about the pediatrician that I'm going to pick just based on some really good recommnendations but am going to meet with him next week and just wanted to know what some of the questions are that I need to ask him?

I am 29 weeks and am meeting with him when I will be 31 weeks. Everyone keeps telling me to go meet with the pediatrician & I don;t really see the rush.. I guess just in case something were to happen early or something, you wouldn't want the first meeting to be in the hospital. This way too you can fill out all the intial new patient paperwork and stuff so you won't need to be doing that with a new baby in the waiting room.

But I would want to interview my ped too. First i would to se what type of person s/he is and if I feel comfortable with them. Then, I would want to know their position on vaccinations. How long does it take to get an appoinment. How long the average wait to be seen is. What to do in case of emergency and after office hours. Who would be his stand in if he was unavailable. Stuff like that.. Most of these questions you can find the answer from the receptionist. Also good to know if you will like the a__sistants and other staff. These just some of the things that were important to me. You should find out about things that are important to you.
