Here are some tips for choosing the right pediatrician for your little one.
For your pediatrician, Dr. Jaime Medrano, and his teams in Weslaco and La Joya, TX, nothing is more important than ensuring that children and teens receive the proper medical care that they need to lead rich, healthy, and fulfilling lives. If you’re currently in the process of choosing a pediatrician for your baby, here are some things to consider:
Do Your Research
In the beginning stages, you may be spending a lot of time on the hunt for the perfect pediatrician practicing in the areas of Weslaco and La Joya, TX. One of the best ways to find a children’s doctor is through referrals. Ask friends and family members whom they trust. Go online and check out online reviews. Dig deep to find all of the services that the pediatrician offers, as well as office hours and the convenience of the office’s location.
The only way you’ll learn more about a practice, its services, and whether it’s a good fit for you is to ask questions. We know that coming into a new practice can feel a bit daunting, so it’s important to write down any and all questions that you may have ahead of time. This way, we can ensure that we address all of your questions and concerns. Some questions you may want to ask include:
- How long have you been in practice?
- Do you accept my insurance?
- How do you address urgent or emergency medical situations?
- What are your office hours?
- How do you handle off-hours appointments and checkups?
There are also questions you should ask yourself. These include:
- Did the practice make me feel comfortable?
- Does the clinic feel inviting and welcoming to kids?
- Are there activities and things for kids to do in the waiting room?
- Are people warm and friendly from the moment I walk through the door?
