Most local pediatricians in my area are by appointment only and very difficult to get in the same day, which is a bit of a headache if your child needs attention but it is not to the point of the emergency room. However, Dr. Marc Connery– a pediatrician here in Hobart Indiana accepts patients on the same day basis with no problem as long time permits. He will try to squeeze you in even if it means he doesn’t have lunch. He’s a great doctor, and his staff is very courteous and knowledgeable. The staff works together in an efficient manner, making sure patients don’t wait too long before seeing the doctor.
Dr. Marc Connery has been a pediatrician for many years; his professional demeanor and gentle ease with children shows it. We have been going to his office for their school physicals, flu shots, and any colds they may get along the way. We are always reminded of our appointments a day or two ahead of time- and if we can’t make it, we simply call at least 24 hours prior to cancel.
I find Dr. Connery to be among the best pediatricians in my area, not because he provides care for my children, but because the care they receive is better than any other doctor we’ve been to. Many doctors just aren’t as personable and professional as this pediatrician. He has no problem giving referrals to specialists if he believes it is necessary, and the doctors he has referred have been outstanding as well. When my childrens’ original pediatrician left town I was heartbroken, but Dr. Marc Connery has definitely been exceptional at getting to know them, and any conditions they suffer from. I never thought I’d be able to replace their previous doctor until a coworker suggested I give his office a call. He takes most major insurance, including medicaid and for those who use cash, his office fees are very affordable.
Finding a pediatrician for your child is an important task, and should not be taken lightly. When children are growing up, there are going to be bumps and bruises along the way, and you want to be able to walk into a doctor’s office the same day if necessary.
