First, the provider arrived late to work. I was sitting in the waiting room and watched the provider walk in the entrance doors three minutes after the start of my child's appointment. If I am expected to be 15 minutes early to my appointment, I expect the doctor to at least be on time. It was very unprofessional. The only time that the pediatrician engaged with my child was during the last five minutes of an hour long appointment. As a parent, I am grateful that the doctor took the time to listen to my concerns; however, I do not believe an adequate diagnosis or clinical picture of my child can be obtained if the doctor barely engages with my child and spends 90% of an appointment typing on a computer. I felt as if the appointment I attended was a glorified "well visit", which is not what I was led to believe by my regular pediatrician. A developmental pediatrician is expected to be a wealth of information about children's development, but the doctor I saw repeated several times that my child was scoring higher than she'd ever seen and she could not provide me with an explanation why my child was behaving a certain way. Further, I was offered no immediate ways to assist my child. No referrals to behavioral therapy, occupational therapy, or other means were provided. All I was given was a flyer about a parent support group that required a fee to attend and would not accept my child because he was too young. I was bit frustrated by this. I was at the appointment to assist my child in succeeding, not getting support for myself. Additionally, the doctor mentioned one instance of a qualm with my parenting choices. This was absolutely unacceptable. It is not her place to say anything about a parent's child rearing unless it is in regards to the safety of the child.
