Find a Pediatrician or Pediatric Specialist

Use this tool to search for an AAP member pediatrician, pediatric sub-specialist, or pediatric surgical specialist.


When choosing a pediatrician it is important that the initials "FAAP" are after his or her name (eg. Sarah H. Jones, MD, FAAP) so that your child gets the best and most up-to-date care possible. FAAPs are:

  • Members (fellows) of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).
  • Board certified in Pediatrics.
  • Committed to lifelong learning.
  • Advocates for children and families.
  • Up to date on the latest in child health.
