setting up a pediatrician
What do you do to set up a pediatrician for when you have the baby? Do you just call and say you want them as your pediatrician? My dr keeps asking who her pediatrician will be and my dr appt is this afternoon and i would like to be able to tell him this time. I never did this with my son i guess bc i lived in a small town with very few to chose from so was never asked, they just sent one in

Most pediatricians have your get up a "get acquainted" visit with them so you can see if you are a good match.

You would need to at least see if they are accepting new patients before you put them down.
