So I'm "new" here... a lurker de-lurking only recently. :) I'm due in mid-March and determined to buckle down and actually find a pediatrician in the next few weeks (especially since I have higher than normal chances of delivering a bit early, due to several different issues... eek!). I admit, I am super stressed about the idea of finding a good pediatrician. I have a serious genetic illness and so have spent my life in doctor's offices and know my way quite well around the medical profession... which means I am strongly opinionated a lot of the time! I hate trying to find new doctors. I want a ped who will take my opinion seriously and respectfully, and who will be OK with a delayed vaxing schedule, and since that is something so many clinics are super hard-line about I'm certainly nervous.
Does anyone have any great tips on interviewing a pediatrician? What questions did you/do you plan to ask? How do you broach the vaccine issue?
