Choosing Us as Your Pediatrician

Here are some helpful tips for finding the right pediatrician for your family.

We understand that choosing a pediatrician isn’t always an easy decision. Many factors go into finding the ideal doctor for your child. Here in Bronx, NY, our pediatricians, Dr. Joice Samuel and Dr. Mirdula Sharma, and Emily Wilson PNP have provided care to children and teens for over a decade. Wondering how to choose the right pediatrician? Here are some tips,

Begin to Search Before the Birth

Finding a pediatrician once your child is born is a huge stressor and the last thing you must worry about. The best thing you can do is to begin the search for your ideal Bronx, NY, pediatrician when you’re 28 to 34 weeks pregnant. Your baby will start visiting their pediatrician within the first 3-5 days of life, so moms-to-be must find a pediatrician before their delivery date. Trust us; it will be a load off your mind once you find a pediatrician the whole family loves.

Ask Your Friends

When it comes to finding your perfect pediatrician, the answer may lie with your friends who already have kids. We all know that kids need a pediatrician, and asking your friends which pediatrician they recommend could be helpful. After all, you trust your friends’ recommendations above most, so getting a referral from them may mean that you’ll find a pediatrician that’s the perfect fit for you and your family.

Talk to Your Health Insurance

Sometimes, it comes down to insurance, so it may be a good idea to call your insurance provider to find out which pediatricians in the Bronx, NY, area are covered under your plan. This can ensure that your child's care is covered, which means less expense for your family. Here at Bronx Kids Pediatrics, we believe that all children should have access to the highest quality health care. That’s why we accept all major health insurance and offer low-cost care to our uninsured patients.
