I think that would depend on your particular parenting style or hopes. Depending on your views on vaccinations, you would want to see where the ped stands. For instance, our ped is ok with delaying vaccines since my kids are at home until they are 2 years old. Outside of that though, I'm not sure. Have you googled? I think the meeting may moreso be to see how you feel about the pediatrician overall.

Circumcision if you are planning on it or not planning on it.

How well child vists work.

how sick vists work.

vaccines depending on how you want to deal with them.

basically when I went I just went to get a feel of them really.

My kids is great I love him he actually calls me not his nurse and he called me to talk about my older sons gentic testing me had done ect ect.

It's been SO long that I honestly don't remember what I asked, LOL. I agree, if you have any strong parenting stances on stuff, I'd ask about those... Also it's good to ask what kind of hours they have, that sort of thing.

I did find this though!

Make sure you can get a same day appointment for a sick child- I have learned my lesson the hard way.

Good Luck! I don't do Peds, I do GPs because I don't do well baby visits. I would def make sure you are on the same page about vaxs. Good Luck!

Thanks for the info! I do have a checklist of questions from thebump.com but I just wanted to get opinions to make sure there was nothing big that they're leaving out from people with experience.

Noelle's ped is actually also a GP, which is cool. We go to a family practice office though.
