One of my least favorite things about moving is finding new doctors and dentists and all that entails. I really liked the dentist and the pediatrician we had in North Carolina, and I have mourned the need to find new ones now that we are in Florida. I spotted a dentist office nearby a couple of weeks ago and checked around for reviews online and even got a recommendation for the same dentist office on a discussion board. So I stopped in last week (on the way back from my eye doctor) and after talking with the front desk staff, went ahead and scheduled cleanings for both kids for today.
That schedule was altered when I had to find a pediatrician for Jonah this week as well. He came down with a virus and was having a fever and ear pain yesterday. I was able to mitigate his discomfort and get him into a new pediatrician today. I'm not a big fan of urgent care unless it's truly urgent, and we need to find a regular pediatrician anyway. So, yesterday afternoon with on-line resources at my fingertips I made him an appointment for this morning with a new doctor - their online reviews were great and I could walk to their office in 10 minutes if I had to. The wait made me a little leery, but I really liked the doctor. And Elisabeth did excellent this afternoon in an unfamiliar dentist office. It was a full day of doctors, but, at least, I have two important things checked off my "To Do" list.
