Few things are more important to parents and families than the health and wellness of their children. One of the things that is central to that health and wellness is choosing the right pediatric health care.
The search for the right pediatric health care office often begins during pregnancy. Experts agree that the second trimester is not too early to start gaining an understanding of what you may be looking for in a pediatrician. Many factors contribute to a pediatric health care team’s qualifications.
Some of the first things to consider are certifications and affiliations. For example, certain certifications ensure that a pediatrician has completed medical school, exams, residencies and other specialized training for infants, children, and adolescents.
Beyond certifications and memberships, most parents and caregivers find it advantageous to have a consultation with a physician, practice, or medical team that they are considering for the primary care of their child. This is why we warmly invite you to schedule an appointment at our office.
There are a couple of things to keep in mind during these consultations. For example, feel free to ask the physician or doctor about hours, availability, and how to best make appointments. Consider you and your family’s schedules, including evenings and weekends, to ensure logistics are optimal.
In many cases, pediatricians do not work alone. They employ the expertise of other knowledgeable and skilled staff to address the needs of children and families. At Southside Medical Center, we work as a team to deliver quality pediatric health care.
