Is General Doctor Cheaper Than Pediatrician?

Postby Alexander » Fri May 19, 2017 6:57 pm

I don't have insurance, my 2 year old has had no well baby visits. Is it less expensive to see a general paracticioner instead of a pediatrician?

No not always and for this I would see the specialist which would be a peds dr they specialize in children where a general dr is quicker to get him in and out and mis diagnose anything

Go to the pediatrician.
They are considered "general practicioners" for children.
Many family doctors will not even take kids until they are older.
The pediatrician will know about developmental issues as well as general health issues.
You also will need to get the child alot of immunizations if that has not been started yet.
You can get those at the public health department.
