The prenatal visit is an excellent opportunity for pediatricians to meet prospective families and pediatricians should emphasize this concept to their obstetrician colleagues. By meeting with a pediatrician, parents have the opportunity to meet the individual who will be caring for their family for the next 20 years. During the interview they may get to know and understand your philosophy of caring for children and young adults and how much you value the relationship. A good impression during this interview could lead to the parents selecting you as their pediatrician and recommending you to other parents. This is an excellent way to build a practice and maintain a good flow of newborns into your office. Encourage both parents to attend the meeting.
