Josh and I went for a tour to see the office and ask some questions. A lot of the answers were somewhat vague, but it was a group tour. The doctor giving the tour said that they look at each individual patient and develop a plan from there. Even though answers seem vague (probably due to legal reasons since none of us were patients), I really liked the individual consideration.
I have heard a lot of families not taking their children to many doctor vists. I agree somewhat ~ if it is not broke, don't fix it. I don't go to the doctor unless I am sick enough to need antibiotics, and that is a rare occurance. However, I don't see doctors as the enemy and the right one can be very helpful.
I have to be honest, I decided to take him for his well check up for these reasons:
- To be established at the practice, just in case of ,,, (fill in the blank),
- Confirmation that he is developing normally.
- Discuss vaccinations ~ which vaccines are the most important, which once can I delay, can I have a shot only visit.
- To find out how much he weighs and how long he is. Mommy wants to know!
