Olivia recently turned 6 months old, so it was time for her check up with the pediatrician.
weight: 17 pounds, 10 oz (66%)
length: 26.5 inches (71%)
I’m always surprised at Olivia’s weigh ins.
Compared to other babies her age, she seems so petite…yet she’s always in the upper percentiles!
The pediatric office that we visited today was recommended to us by a lot of our friends
(of the 14 responses we received, 8 of our friends recommended it!)
but I was actually pretty disappointed with it.
Our pediatrician in Ohio was the best…always willing to talk with us about concerns/answer any questions/offer advice.
The office I went to today felt very much like a business.
We didn’t get to see a doctor (we saw a nurse practitioner instead) and found out that we’d probably see someone different every time we went in.
There weren’t any pleasantries exchanged, no “hi, welcome to our practice”, no “tell me about your kids!”, nothing.
All business, all the time.
And while that atmosphere might work for some people, it isn’t the kind of office I had hoped for.
So we probably won’t be back to that practice and will continue our search for a pediatrician that we love.
Recommendations are welcome. Tell me why you love your ped!
