We just recently moved to a new state and are looking for a doctor for our 2.5-year-old dd. Do you think it's better to go with a Pediatrician or a Family Practitioner? DD is selectively vaxxed, but she's not due for any boosters until age 6, so I don't think this will be a big issue since it will be a few years before this even needs to be discussed. She's almost never been sick and even when she has been it's always just been a mild cold so I never take her in. We sporadically do well-child visits (they're always around dd's birthday, which is in December, peak cold season, so I have to admit we skipped her 2-year visit and to be honest, I don't much see the point anyway). A lot of Pediatricians seem to be a bit too involved, but I don't know if that's totally a bad thing although it can be irritating. What are your thoughts? Anyone here see a Family Practioner and like him/her? Can you tell me about your experiences? What would you recommend we do?
