William’s last weekly well child visit was this one, his one month check. As previous appointments had, this one started with measurements to chart his growth process.
When William and I were in the hospital after his birth, we both saw our individual doctors once a day in the morning. I soon learned that newborns have a lot of appointments and William would need to be seen soon the next week. As Dr. V did not have any openings at the beginning of the week, his first post hospital pediatrician visit was with Dr. F.
I had been told that William would receive a pediatrician visit the day after he was born. I was told that it might be Dr. V who is his official doctor, though it could be someone else depending on who was on call.
Matt and I really like my OB, Dr. G, so we wanted to find a pediatrician similar to him. Dr. G had supplied us with two names of doctors meeting this criteria with one slightly more recommended as he had been in practice longer. Last week I talked to the first doctor on the list, Dr. V, who was a great fit even over the phone. In just a few minutes I learned a lot about just how similar he and Dr. G were from having the same first name and training, to having similar views on many things to coincidentally buying homes in the same neighborhood. He invited us to come down near the end of the day on Monday where he would find 10-15 minutes to talk with us.
