As a busy mom there are just not enough hours in a day. The last thing you need to worry about on top of the load that already exists is deciding whether to take your sick child to a general GP or a pharmacist.
In general, some families think that if they already have a dentist, optometrist, GP and a pharmacist, there is no need for anything else. Although a GP is your go-to person for every medical issue, a paediatrician is a must, especially when you’ve got growing children. Some medical issues are best dealt with someone who’s a specialist in their field.
There are so many infections and viruses that affect kids in so many ways that going to a doctor that specializes in children is the best decision for any parent. Not only do they save you time and money in the long run they know how to best deal with a sick child.
One of the best reasons to have a paediatrician is that kids love them! This is awesome because we all know that as a mom you have better luck finding parking in a busy mall at the end of the month than you do getting your little one to see the dentist. Paediatricians are a parent’s best friend so why not get someone who knows how to handle your two year old who’s famous for throwing tantrums.
