The Keys to Choosing a Great Pediatrician

When looking for a pediatrician, it’s important to find one that respects your parenting preferences and is current with evidence-based research. Here are some tips to consider when determining if a pediatrician is a good fit for you and our top picks we recommend to the families we support.

What Makes a Great Pediatrician

  • They are current on up-to-date evidence-based medical care and research.
  • They genuinely respect your parenting preferences for your family.
  • They are easy to speak with and listen to your concerns as a parent.
  • The friendliness and professionalism of their office staff is a reflection of their practice as a whole.
  • They have a compassionate approach with all their young patients (including those who may have sensory sensitivities).
  • They are supportive of all infant feeding options. If you intend to breastfeed, they support your breastfeeding goals, have a knowledge of updated infant growth charts for breastfed babies, and know how to spot the signs of oral restrictions. They also know when to refer you to a qualified IBCLC for advanced lactation support.
  • They provide evidence-based guidance around healthcare and understand that a “one size fits all” approach doesn’t work for every family.
  • They are frequently recognized as top providers by medical peers and in their community.
