Finding a Doctor You Trust

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 04-11-2007

Try to find a doctor you like and trust. It helps if your baby sees the same doctor or nurse every time. That makes it easier to keep track of your baby’s needs.

If you don’t know where to take your baby for care, call your local health department. The phone number is in the “government” listings of the phone book. You can also try a local hospital.

Ask a close friend or relative who has children whom she takes her children to for health care. Ask if she really likes her children’s doctor and if the doctor is good at taking time to explain things and answer questions.

If your baby is eligible for Medicaid, she can get free checkups. You can call your local social welfare, health or family services office to see if you qualify for Medicaid services.
