I've gotten this question a handful of times from readers, so I thought I'd pose it in our relaunched Help a Mom series.

Do you love your children's pediatrician? If so, share your favorites!

Readers' questions are posed in the Help a Mom series every Wednesday. If you have a question for Help a Mom, click here to email it to me.

    Although they are not pediatricians, I had to post on here to mention the doctors at the Doctor's Vision Center at the New Bern Ave office in Raleigh. I take all of my children there for eyeglasses as well as check-ups and could not have had a better experience. They were all "kid people" and made my nervous children feel comfortable. You can even schedule appointments online. They're website is simple...

    Jeffers, Mann and Artman are great! I love Dr. Mann and Dr. Alexander.

    I SO agree with "cregister"! Dr. Knudsen at Growing Child Pediatrics is great! Michelle Bae is wonderful too! It is so nice to work with people who KNOW my child so well!

    Can't believe no one has mentioned Dr. Wiles @ Wiles Pediatrics. We have been with him for almost 10 years. Great doctor, really relates to my kids on their level. And Nurse Janet is the best!!

    And another from my inbox: Dr. Patrick Fennel of Sunrise Pediatrics in Raleigh has been our family's only pediatrician, with occassional fill-ins by his partner, Dr. Murnane. We have four children, now aged 15-23, and all have received consistently excellent and compassionate care from Dr. Fennel. He always calls back,nights or weekends, follows up on referral results and goes the extra mile to see that his patients are happy and healthy. I give him and unqualified outstanding rating.

    And another emailed to me:

    Jeffers, Mann and Artman ... Wonderful practice with several locations and weekend hours. All of the doctors are super but my favorites are Dr. Degele and Chris Barry--you never feel rushed and they take their time to answer all of your questions. I have been taking my two boys there since 2003. Can't say enough good things about them!

    And some more from my inbox:

    Love, love everyone at Oberlin Rd. Pediatrics, especially Shaw, Bodenstine and Stewart. The other doctors are great too, but I don't know them as well. They are knowledgable, kind and compassionate. They feel like family, only smarter! The nurses are so helpful and always get right back to you.

    My children go the Raleigh Children in Brier creek. They see Dr. Jamilia Fletcher she is wonderful.

    Dr. Laura Kelly at White Oak Pediatrics on Lake Boone Trail.
    We did a Meet and Greet while I was pregnant with my daughter and I found them helpful and informative. My daughter has been a patient since she was born 4 years ago. All of the doctors are great, but we prefer to use Dr Kelly because she my child is so familiar with her. I really like the fact that they are open on Sat-Sun for sick appointments.

    My son is 2, and we love Carolina Kids! My husband saw Dr. Foor when he was a kid! Dr. Tanaka is a little cold, but I completely trust him with my son. We love Dr. Willey and Dr. Nechyba, and the nurse practitioner, Blair!

    I use Growing Child in Zebulon for my daughter. It is just a couple of miles from my home and so convenient. We don't always have the same dr. every time we go, but I have never had any problems there. I highly recommend them for people in the area who are like me & don't think it's necessary to drive to Knightdale, Raleigh or Clayton to get good care for your child.
