Around here, the very first question would be "Are you taking new Medicaid patients?" DS is Medicaid and we had difficulty finding a ped that was taking new patients. Originally, the closest one was 30 minutes away. Luckily, I begged and my daughters ped took him on, but everyone I called was more than happy to take him til they found out he was Medicaid, and I was told their docket was full. Even our own ped told us that originally.
Ask about vaxes, if sick kids are seen same day, who covers after hours calls, what hospitals they have privileges at, and how aggressive they are with antibiotics.
