Here’s what you should know when it comes to finding the ideal pediatrician for your child.
When it comes to your child’s health, finding the right pediatrician for your family is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make. Even before your baby arrives, you will probably start to research pediatricians in Riverside, CT, along with the New Canaan and Greenwich, CT, areas. Most soon-to-be parents begin shopping around for a pediatrician around 3 months before their baby’s due date. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a pediatrician and how our team at Riverside Pediatrics can provide your little one with the trustworthy care they deserve.
Where is the office’s location?
Location can be a big factor when choosing the right pediatrician. How convenient is the pediatrician’s office from your house? Choosing a pediatrician that is close to home or the office can save you time, which we know matters. We know how important it is to be able to have a pediatrician within reach, which is why we provide offices in both the Riverside and New Canaan, CT, areas to serve you and your family better.
What is the pediatrician’s expertise?
While all pediatricians go through medical school and a residency program before getting licensed there are some key differences between pediatricians’ credentials and their background. For example, not all pediatricians are board-certified, but members of our staff are. A board-certified pediatrician has had to undergo additional training and an examination to prove their skills in everything from communication and patient care to medical expertise. For example, Dr. Beckman has also received countless accolades including being named a Castle Connolly Top Doctor, New York Magazine Top Doctor, and a Connecticut Magazine Top Doctor.
What services does the office provide?
There are many things to consider when coming into a pediatrician’s practice for the first time, especially if you’re trying to find out if they’ll be the ideal doctor for your child. It’s important to understand how the office operates including scheduling, hours of operation, and other special services they offer. For example, the team at Riverside Pediatrics offers weekend hours urgent care at their Greenwich, CT, practice. This includes providing weekend care when urgent medical issues arise such as a fever or pink eye. We can fill most prescriptions on-site and we provide these services to both new and existing patients.
