Actually Phoenix Children's is a great suggestion. My youngest boy had surgery there for an undescended testicle and they were amazing. They really know their stuff when it comes to pediatric health issues, and no insurance fight either. We were out of pocket very little.
My wife is an NP and used to work for Mayo. She tells me that her friends tell her they are running at about
1/2 capacity these days. Part of the problem is they accept so few insurance plans and they no longer accept medicare. I think it's generally agreed that Mayo Scottsdale is not like Mayo Rochester quality wise. Mayo here in Scottsdale doesn't really do ped's at all. Phoenix Children's handles most pediatric issues. They have a wonderful facility around the 51 and Thomas rd.
BTW, if you are looking for a pediatrician for well care and other more minor stuff, we use Dr. Arturo Gonzales who I would highly recommend. Everyone he has referred us to has been great, like the surgeon who did the surgery my son needed.
All the best to you and your son.
