I'm searching now to change Doctors. The Dr. here is nice, but the office staff is difficult. They have cancelled my appt. & told me they would reschedule in 2 days. That was 2 1/2wks. ago. They are cold & seem unhappy with their jobs. They do NOTHING to help the client out.

We LOVE our primary pediatrician - we've also seen a couple other doctors for sick visits and they have been great, along with all of the nurses and support staff. However; we saw Dr. Blasberg for a sick visit for our 2 year old daughter (he is not our primary pediatrician) and had never met him before. He has TERRIBLE bedside manner and very little patience for small children. He didn't smile at her, talk to her or try to make her feel more comfortable. When she started crying during the exam (because she was not feeling well and was nervous since she did not know him), instead of allowing us to try to calm her down he instructed us to hold her tighter and literally cornered against the wall just her to look in her her ears and listen to her heart. When he used the tongue depressor to look in her mouth he shoved it in so far that he gagged her several times. At this point I said something to him about his actions. He became clearly annoyed with me and gave us very vague information about her infection and what he was prescribing her. I had to ask so many questions to get basic info from him - could she go to school? What should we know? what was the treatment? Will we have refills on the script? All things that he should have shared with us right off the bat. It was a horrible experience and we will NEVER see him again. He should reconsider his decision to work with small children.
Tips & Advices
A child should see his or her pediatrician frequently during the first few years. Once the child reaches age 3, parents should schedule a doctor's visit at least once per year. Before that, however, the American Academy of Pediatrics suggests parents arrange visits according to the following schedule:
  • 2 to 5 days old
  • 1 month old
  • 4 months old
  • 6 months old
  • 9 months old
  • 12 months old
  • 15 months old
  • 24 months old (2 years)
  • 30 months old (2.5 years)
No, parents should call 911, an emergency physician, or a pediatric emergency physician if a child suffers an acute illness or injuries. Doctors in these fields are more qualified than pediatricians to handle emergency situations.
A well-visit is a routine visit with a pediatrician to track a child's development, discuss medical or emotional concerns, and receive immunizations and medical advice.
Yes, pediatricians provide immunizations for infants and children up through 21 years.
No, pediatricians do not have to be board certified.They're only required to have a state license. However, certification indicates a dedication to studying pediatrics beyond the requirements.
