Age to stop going to Pediatrician?
momhorseman posted:
I'm wondering at what age should I change my kids to a regular doctor instead of a pediatrician? My ex-husband and I are in a disagreement on this. Could people give me some advice please.
Annie_WebMD_Staff responded:
Hi momhorseman, At the current time this board does not have a WebMD health professional to answer community members' questions. You don't mention how old your children are but the parents on our support group board may be able to tell you whether they use pediatricians, family physicians, or walk in clinics (docs in a box). - Annie

Ask your pedi what they recommend. Some will only see them till they are 18, others will see them until they are 23, as ours will. Good luck
love_eyeore responded:
It depends on a few things: 1-Are your teen kids comfortable going to a pediatrician? 2-Are your kids getting their needs met? 3-What is the providers comfort level in managing teens and young adults and what are his/her limits/credentials? 4-Does your child have a chronic illness? 5-Are there adult providers who can provide better care for his/her issues? Sorry this is not a yes or no answer, but there are many things to consider. Some providers love caring for teens and will keep them through highschool, some into college, and for some kids with chronic illness they will keep their pediatric provider through college. It just depends on how it's working for your child, family and your provider.
