THE PERFECT PEDIATRICIAN
The perfect pediatrician is on call 24 hours a day. He can stay on schedule in the office while making rounds at the hospital, attending c-sections, caring for critically ill children in the ICU, answering phone calls, and writing letters to insurance companies. He can review charts and consult with other physicians after he makes 7:00 AM rounds at the hospital and before he arrives at the office at 9:00 AM.
The perfect pediatrician has an understanding family who doesn't let 2:00 AM phone calls disturb them. His family never gets sick, never goes on vacation, and doesn't care if he's never home for dinner.
The perfect pediatrician has an efficient staff who can schedule appointments exactly to your specifications. They can answer 30 phone calls between 9:00-9:30 AM and maintain cheerful dispositions while being called names by someone they put "on hold." They can do wonders with paperwork so that your insurance will cover EVERYTHING and so you won't need to pay your bill.
The perfect pediatrician has a nurse who will answer your calls right away and knows all the answers to your questions. She is able to see exactly what a rash looks like over the phone. She can give shots that have no side effects and that don't hurt.
The perfect pediatrician has equally perfect partners who know exactly who you are and your child's entire medical history.
The perfect pediatrician has a plush, new office with beautifully decorated exam rooms that can be colored on, pooped on, thrown up on, and have Cheerios ground into while maintaining a spotless appearance.
The perfect pediatrician has all the answers to toilet training, discipline problems, and eating habits. He can make your baby sleep through the night.
But....DOES HE GIVE OUT NEAT STICKERS LIKE DR. DAWSON, IWASHYNA, AND COLLEY DO?!
