Getting the Most Out of Doctor Visits

There’s a lot of things for parents to think about when it comes to their child’s healthcare. What should I consider when choosing a pediatrician? How do I help prepare my child (and myself) for a visit to the doctor’s office? What’s the best way to bring up any concerns I may have about my child? In the November issue of Bay Area Parent Magazine, Dr. Melanie A. Atmadja answers these questions and gives helpful advice on how to get the most out of your child’s visits to the pediatrician.


Melanie A. Atmadja, M.D. is a board-certified pediatrician at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation’s Mountain View Center.
