New York August 4, 2004 Results of a new survey released today by iVillage reveal insights into how moms select and interact with their baby's pediatrician.

This is true of mothers today more so than any other generation."

According to the survey, 25 percent of mothers interview pediatricians before choosing a physician for their child.

In addition, more than half (51 percent) of mothers surveyed rated a doctor's compatibility with their own parenting objectives and philosophy of care as an important factor in choosing a physician for their baby. On average, moms interview between two and three pediatricians before making a selection. Of particular note, moms
