Knowing you have good medical care for your child can put your mind at ease, and choosing a good doctor ahead of time can save a lot of worry. Asking the right questions about your child's illness or medications will also help you take the best care of them.

Sooner or later, your child will have an illness or an accident that requires medical attention. In most cases, it will be something minor: a cough or cold, a bump or scrape. In cases where the illness is serious enough to need prompt and expert medical attention as a matter of life or death, you’ll want to be prepared. During an emergency is not the time to work out where the hospital is or which doctor you want your child to see.
