Picking a Pediatrician

I haven't chosen ours yet, but here are some of the things I'll consider or want to ask when choosing:
  • Is the doctor conveniently located?
  • Are office hours convenient, including weekends and evenings?
  • Does the doctor have partners, and is someone always on call?
  • How quickly will a doctor call you back?
  • Do they accept my insurance?
  • What are the doctor's hospital affiliations?
  • Will the doctor come to see the baby after she is born?
  • What are the doctor's child-rearing philosophies?
