My kids just celebrated a birthday which means time for a wellness check-up, but alas! Mommy does not have a doctor! Did I already say that I miss Dr. Tigar? We were blessed that our former pediatrician was also a friend from church. So, now I have the difficult task of looking for a doctor for my kids who is in our network! So, I keyed in all the information and a few doctors came up, I googled them (thank you google) and headed to my first ‘choice’. I decided to go to the place and have a feel for it. This clinic is HUGE!! I should have turned back as soon as I saw the line to enter the elevator. Oh well, I went to the peds floor, I still was not feeling it. When it was finally my turn to talk to the receptionist, she told me that I could not make an appointment unless I had the kids immunization records with me…okay (I did not have them)…she also was not sure if I could use TN immunization records…okay. Wow, I know my child will be one of the 1000 your practice sees everyday. As I was driving home, I saw this doctor’s sign in this tiny place, I had seen that name as one of the in-network doctors but since I had not googled him, I did not want to stop and check them out. Finally, two days later, I ventured to my second choice, this was a much smaller practice and as they said on their website, their front office staff were very pleasant. I got my appointment and I think it is going to be fine. (the second practice requests for the medical records for their patients) Now to look for a family doctor…should have listened to my Dad and gone to medical school…keep healthy!!
