Our provider asked us at our last appointment if we had picked a pediatrician yet and to be honest, it wasn't something that had even crossed my mind at this point (I know, it's probably terrible but I've been so busy with just learning about baby/pregnancy/L&D/life in general that I just haven't gotten that far yet!).
I started poking around on this site to see if there were any suggestions for natural-parenting-friendly providers in my area. I narrowed it down and called one today to ask if he was taking new patients -- and I got a firm "we can't make an appointment for you until you are home with baby." I just wanted to know if it was even going to be possible to use him. And I've heard about "interviewing" pediatricians -- that's what I thought we'd be able to do but I felt like I just got shut down right away because I don't already have a baby.
So...how am I supposed to go about finding a pediatrician? And for those of you that have "interviewed" pediatricians, what sort of questions were on your list?
