I'm looking into shadowing a pediatrician for a day (or more) and I was wondering how to go about doing so. My friend says that her pediatrician is awesome and that I should contact him, so I already know who I want to contact I just don't know how. She says I should call him because it is more professional and he can't ignore me that way. I think it would be easier for me to type an email though because I am not a phone person at all.
Does it come across as less professional to send an email? Should I just suck it up and make a phone call instead?
