Nothing I have ever encountered strikes fear into my heart like an injured or sick child. I am reasonably sure that all other parents out there feel the same way. I am sure you don’t want to just trust any doctor in Maine with your children. You also likely are not willing to go through any trial and error with one of your own children as you would be willing to go through to find your own doctor.
A pediatrician is going to have to click with you and gain your trust before they see your child and I feel exactly the same way. Unlike many of our service listings, you do not want to wait to find a pediatrician until an emergency strikes. You want to have them on speed dial long before that. So now is the perfect time to use our Maine are list of top recommended pediatricians and start interviewing them. Find the one who you would trust with your children. Don’t forget that people change over time and that can apply to not only your doctors but also your pediatricians. If any of our Maine doctors have declined in their performance, please let us know! It is vital that we keep the below list updated with only the doctors that will care for your children as if they were their own. It is also a great idea to establish a pediatrician for short term work conditions even if they last less than a year. So if you will be stationed somewhere else, start researching area pediatricians now so you are as prepared as possible.
