    Do suburban/ city docs see very many pediatric patients these days. I figured mostly they would be seen by pediatric docs. Thanks for the insight!

    Depends on the practice. Many times there are FP and pediatric mixed practices and so both see many peds.

    I think there's an extremely wide variation. I spent May doing a preceptorship with a family doc, and he probably saw <12 kids the whole time I was there. A friend of mine down the hall with another doc said they probably saw a few kids every day.
