Doctor DoMuch

Summy's pediatrician been her doctor since her birth. He has always been very gentle. He has always listened and paid attention to her, even before she started to talk. He has always talked directly to her instead of through us. It is sad (for us), but he is retiring. He told us so a few months ago, and now we got the final goodbye letter from him, prompting us to look for a new doctor.

The good news is that we already have one. The one whose four year old daughter is getting nominated for the Academy Awards (Summy is the other finalist). How could I do better than the doctor whose kid is going through the same things that Summy is? As soon as Summy asked for a sticker, she went straight for a couple of huge Dora stickers - because she had noticed the Dora sandals that Summy was wearing. Her old doctor, the best in all other ways, would pick out something like Snoopy or Spongebob.

Hope doctor visits continue to be pleasant outings for Summy.

My persoanl opinion.....I would not go for a pediatrician that old (almost to retire in 3-4 yrs). Somehow they are very conseravtive in their treatment.....So great that you have a new ped..

Finding a good ped is such pain and having a great ped is just a huge relief. Glad that you already have such understanding ped for summy. And howcome all the girls are such drama queens:-) My daughter will join the club soon as she already is in action:-)

Finding a good doc is so important. While my kid enjoys the visit I am terrorised by the lizards outside her place
