We're going to take the plunge and try a new pediatrician for the kids. We've been talking about it for awhile now but haven't been able to find someone close to us that wasn't part of a big practice. Plus it's a big step as we've been going to this dr for 8 yrs...ever since Kenzie was a baby. But we currently have to drive 40 minutes to get to their current pediatrician which is getting to be a bit much with all the kids, plus it requires us to drive across the bridge and in the summer that can get a bit tricky. This new dr is only 2.5 miles from our house so getting there will be a breeze. They have good hours...a couple of days they have late evening hours and they also have Saturday appts. I was a little nervous, though, because he has a name I can't pronounce so I was concerned that we wouldn't be able to understand him but he sounds like a very nice man. I got to talk to him for a minute when I called up to make an appt. And come to find out, I didn't need to worry about having to pronounce his name...everyone just calls him Dr. K. LOL The office manager was very pleasant and didn't even get mad at me when I called back 5 minutes after making the appt to change it. Sheeze, I just can not keep track of all the kids schedules. LOL I'm hoping we are doing the right thing cause we are having to make this switch with Kearsyn first and she's due to have shots at her next appt so that will be a pain with her current dr if we don't end up liking this new dr but from all indications so far, that shouldn't be a problem. Let's hope so at any rate. I'll let you know on 2/14...hmm, it just occurred to me that's Valentine's day...as that's when her appt with the new dr is.
