Thinking On It

Before combing the internet or asking other parents for their advice, begin by compiling your own personal vision of wellness. Include aspects such as, how you came to choose your own doctors, are you satisfied with your personal experiences at their offices and under their care, what type of care is most important to you, were you under their care for an emergency and how was it handled? If you answer in a less than attractive way to any of these, then jot down notes off to the side that reflects how you would have liked the situation handled or how you'd like to see your care improved.

How we care for ourselves is often reflected by how we care for our children. This list you've compiled will be a guide, helping you choose who cares for your child's wellness and how. There are other considerations to shape your decision as well.

A more patient-focused, smaller practice environment has become quite attractive when putting our faith into the physician's hands these days as well.
