It’s important to find a pediatrician that puts your child’s health first.

Nothing is more important than the health of your child. You want to stop every sniffle and kiss every boo-boo; however, it can feel particularly daunting when it’s time to decide which pediatrician will handle your child’s general health. Our pediatricians--Dr. Karen Pediatrician Beckman, M.D & Dr. Alejandro Mones --at Riverside Pediatrics, LLC. in Greenwich and Cos Cob, CT understand how much trust you put in us to make sure your child gets the best care he or she needs. So, while you’re doing your research, here are some things to consider before choosing your pediatrician:

  1. Proximity: Is the pediatrician’s office close to your home? This can be particularly important if your child comes down with a sudden illness. The sooner you can get your child in to see the pediatrician the faster we can treat the problem. While distance shouldn’t be the main factor, it’s certainly something to consider if you’re making frequent trips to and from the doctor’s office.

  2. Insurance: Is your pediatrician on your health insurance list? While provider lists often change, it’s important to make sure your child’s medical needs with be covered by your insurance. We take a variety of different insurance programs, so feel free to call us. However, also look for us on your insurance company’s provider list.

  3. Availability: Is your doctor available most days of the week? Are there after-hours services and same-day appointments for emergencies?

We want to make sure you get the answers you need to your child’s urgent health problems.

  4. Rapport: The first face-to-face interaction between a pediatrician and a new patient is the most important. You want to feel comfortable addressing concerns and asking questions. You also want to feel like your Greenwich and Cos Cob, CT pediatrician is listening, understanding and isn’t rushing you through your visit. After all, this pediatrician could be handling your child’s medical needs for the next 18 years!
