Pediatrician Near Me

Taking your child to the pediatrician for a medical check or treatment is an essential part of parenting. If your child is nervous or afraid, you need to make sure they feel comfortable with the pediatrician so that you can get a positive result from your appointment. Here we'll give you tips for helping your child feel comfortable and relaxed when you visit your pediatrician.

Let your child know what to expect

You need to be truthful as possible. Gently tell your child if he or she will undergo something that will be uncomfortable. Emphasize that you'll be with them throughout the whole process.

Tell your child the reason you're going to see a pediatrician

Let your child know that the pediatrician is there to help. Always talk about the pediatrician positively to prepare your child's mind. Explain why it's essential to visit the pediatrician even if they're healthy. Tell them that pediatricians want to be sure they are well.

Offer some form of distractions while waiting

Does your child have a video they could watch while waiting for the pediatrician? Keeping your child's thoughts occupied during the waiting time can help ease the anxiety involved in visiting the pediatrician. You can sing your child's favorite song or tell jokes to distract them.

Talk to about "Comfort Positions"

These are different ways to hold your child while having a vaccination or being examined. The goal is to help keep him or her calm, create coping strategies and let the child know that you are there throughout the visit.

Provide positive incentive

Provide some reward for your child after the appointment. This reward does not have to be anything fancy or expensive. You can reward him or her with a trip to the park or a special movie together after the pediatrician appointment.

Ensure you always have a positive attitude

Your child will likely practice what they see in you. If you're nervous or upset with the pediatrician, they'll copy on these emotional strings. Always speak positively when you're going to see your doctor.

Stay focused during appointments

When our phones constantly buzz, it's hard to stay focused. During pediatrician appointments, switch off or silence your cell phone so that you won't be distracted by phone calls, emails, or text alerts.

Change your pediatrician if needed

You know your child more than anyone else, so if he or she is not comfortable with a pediatrician, you need to consider seeing someone else. Everyone is different, and some pediatricians might not be the best for your child. Please don't force your child to keep seeing a doctor that makes him or her unhappy or uncomfortable.

Our daughter went through rapid detox about 4 months ago. She was addicted to opiates after pain suffered in a car accident over 2 years ago. Through counseling, she finally decided that she "wanted to get her life back." We did not know that she was addicted, but we knew that she was in constant pain,
