Doctor, Doctor...

This morning, I had a "Meet the Doctor" appointment with Dr. Shidler at Boys Town Pediatrics' Lakeside location and it went really well. She was extremely friendly, knowledgeable and seemed like someone I could really get along with. Plus, she works six days a week which means she's available when we need her. On her day off (Thursday), she recommends any of the other three doctors who practice with her.

Dr. Shidler easily answered my questions and we talked about some of her personal opinions: breastfeeding (she did, but doesn't judge mothers who choose not to), immunizations, going back to work after her most recent baby after 3 1/2 weeks (she loves her job) and other things.

Besides her personal attributes, I really like what Boys Town Pediatrics offers:
  • Same Day Pediactrics -  if we call by 4pm to get an appointment for Little Mango, we will get in yet that day.
  • Office Hours - the offices is open until 7pm or 8pm each week night. Plus they are open on Saturdays.
  • After Hours - they have a 24 hour helpline with a registered nurse to answer any questions we may have - that gives me great piece of mind should anything come up late into the night....lord knows I will have plenty of questions!
It's such a relief to have our pediatrician....just one more thing to check off the to-do list!
