Is it important for a pediatrician to have both well and sick waiting rooms?
A: My husband and I are expecting a baby in a few months, and we are busy interviewing pediatricians. I’ve read that having separate waiting rooms for sick and healthy kids is a good idea and will keep our baby from catching other kids’ illnesses. Do you feel this should be a requirement for choosing a pediatrician? If not, what can we do to prevent our child from catching others germs?
