I commonly get asked questions about who I consider to be the best Montgomery pediatricians. Finding a pediatrician for your child can be a daunting task! One of the first steps you will take when embarking on the ever changing journey of parenthood is finding a trusted pediatrician for your sweet babe. There are so many things to consider; do you value a hollistic approach? Are you wanting someone that is straightforward and gets right to the point? Do you need a Dr. that has a more gently personality? The last few years have also shown us that there can be a very wide range of very strong feelings on vaccines. Finding the right doctor is not only a must, but also can be very challenging.
So what better way to provide you with all your answers than a list of five of the top Montgomery Pediatricians in the area. Below, you will find some valuable information about pediatricians in Montgomery, and what you should expect along the way.

Helping you know more about Montgomery Pediatricians
Dr. Daria Joy Anagnos, MD
Dr. Anagnos works in Prattville, Alabama as well as three other locations in teh River Region Area. She is affiliated with Baptist Medical Center East which gets higher ratings than Jackson Hospital in downtown Montgomery. Patients say that she takes time to answer their questions and does well at providing follow-up appointments as necessary. She adequately explains the conditions and treatments to patients which is a must in my book. Office wait time is under ten minutes! That is so nice! Her office staff gets 3/5 stars for friendliness and the office has the same rating as far as cleanliness and scheduling flexibility goes. From their own website they state “We pride ourselves in being an exceptional clinic where children come first. Our child-focused practice works hard to meet the needs of children from infancy through adolescence. Compassionate, knowledgeable and supportive staff is the cornerstone of Montgomery, Prattville, and Clanton Pediatric’s quality care.

Dr. Olivia Caridad Cu Garcia, MD
Dr. Garcia has been one of the Montgomery Pediatricions for over 30 years.

She is affiliated with Baptist Medical Center South and Children’s of Alabama, which receives rave reviews from my circle of friends. To find out more click here.
