How do I choose between a family doctor and a pediatrician?

To make the selection, you first need to understand what is the difference between a family doctor and a pediatrician. A family doctor can treat children as well as adults in the family while a pediatrician only specializes in infants, children, and teenagers. For some people, getting treated by the same doctor is important. Others prefer to have a doctor focused on the needs of children only.

Ultimately, the decision is a personal one where you need to select the doctor with whom you are most comfortable. You can try interviewing the family doctor and the pediatrician to help you make the decision. Here are a couple of things you can discuss with the doctor before selecting the right one for you:

Their office hours
If the staff is friendly or not
The hospital they are affiliated with
Billing process
Emergency after-hours services
Getting the same doctor during every visit

What will happen with the pediatrician after my child becomes a teenager?

It is very important to maintain a good relationship with your pediatrician during adolescence. During this time, a teenager is going through a lot of physical and emotional changes. After they reach puberty, they will have a lot of questions about the health issues that they might want to ask their doctor in private. Once they reach the age of 16 years, they can decide if they want to make a transition from a general pediatrician to a general practitioner.
