I’m starting the pediatrician interviews today. I’m not at all worried about this process, as I have very good insurance and there are a plethora of qualified medical providers in this city.
The first thing I did to begin the process was do a doctor look-up with my insurance company. That query gave me a ton of options. From there I looked at location and then I looked at the background of each doctor.
I narrowed down my search based on what school they went to. Call me an elitist if you want to, but I absolutely prefer a doctor that went to an Ivy league medical school or my alma mater over the doctor that got his degree from the University of Guadalajara. No joke. The University of Guadalajara. Did his degree come with a wedge of lime and a lick of salt?
So today I am going to a practice where the head just happened to graduate from the same school as me AND she has the same first and last name as my deceased grandmother which also happens to be the name I would have given to Foxy had I not been vetoed.
Hey, I believe in kismet.
I also have another interview scheduled Thursday at another practice. This is based on a referral from my OB.
My question for you, my most astute readers, is what types of questions should I be asking. What is important to me? Do I care about sick appointments? Whether the pediatrician will come to the hospital after Foxy is born?
