Finding a doctor you can trust with your kiddo’s development and medical emergencies is one of the most important decisions any family has to make. You will see your pediatrician a lot after your little one is born until approximately the age of two, and then regularly for preventive checkups. If your child starts exhibiting symptoms that might point to something outside of your pediatrician’s domain, them being a top-notch professional is of paramount importance because they are the ones who refer you to subspecialists for further treatment.
