Finding The Right Pediatrician For Your Child

Whether you're expecting your first child, or are looking for new pediatric care for your children, choosing the right pediatrician for your child is a very important decision. Our team of pediatricians with Horizon Pediatrics Primary Care in Thornton, Denver, and Longmont, CO, encourages you to familiarize yourself with the aspects below when searching for the right pediatrician.

Research and Receive Recommendations

If you are pregnant, knowing who your child's pediatrician will be before your due date is highly encouraged—not only because it's one less aspect to worry about, but it's also reassuring to know that you have an available resource for questions or concerns that you may have in those early days.

An ideal way to begin your search for a pediatrician is by asking friends and family, or others you trust (e.g. your OB/GYN, coworkers, neighbors, etc.). Once you've assembled your list, you can extend your research by heading to the recommended practice websites or credible reviews online from current or previous patients.

Our pediatricians with Horizon Pediatrics Primary Care in Thornton, Denver, and Longmont, CO, suggest making note of the following information from the pediatric practices you are considering:

  • Accepted insurance
  • Their credentials and experience
  • Office location(s)
  • Services they provide
  • Accessibility

Schedule Meetings With Potential Pediatricians

When you narrow down your list of pediatricians, the next step is to visit with those at the top of your list. Whether you meet in person or virtually, it's important to get a good idea of who they are and that you feel comfortable with them, since they will be seeing your child frequently.

These visits are also a great time to ask any questions you have about their practice, experience, and anything else you find important for your child.

Making The Best Choice For Your Family

Being confident about the care your child receives not only assures your family's well-being, but also the development and growth of your child well into their adolescent years.
