Ask your friends in the area.
Choose a clinic convenient to your home, since you will be going there a lot. Don't be afraid to change pediatricians if you don't click with the first one. Look at the hours of their office- do they work everyday, only mwf? What works with your schedule?

I agree and don't forget to make sure the doctor accepts your insurance otherwise you will have more expenses

In brief: Ask friends
First: be practical.
Look at names on your insurance list, and relatively close by-- there are a lot of appointments the first year! look for a place with easy parking, and friendly staff on the phone that are easy to reach. The doc should be a board certified pediatrician (look for initials faap). Then, ask friends to see who likes their ped!

To check if a pediatrician is board certified go to: www.ABP.org and select: is your pediatrician board certified and then add the name FAAP after the name does not necessarily indicate that the doctor is board certified
