Re: What type of Dr. does your LO see?

we are going to try the pediatritian who is less than a mile from us and open evening and weekends (which makes me happy) but any flack we get for delayed/selective vaxing or not circumcising...we are done and will be hunting for a new doc. DH is seeing an osteopath for his physical on the 22nd...maybe he will work out good. Who knows! I am really struggling with this. I just don't want an argument whenever i go, but since i am doing some vaccines and such i will need a doctor.

They see a pediatric nurse practitioner....we were seeing a pediatrician and one day needed a quick appt and it was with the PNP, and I've loved him so we make appts with him every time.

Ds2 also sees an opthamologist.

I thought the same thing! After talking to my midwife (who happens to be a naturopath too) she told me many can give vaccines and do carry them in the office for patients that choose to vax. They'll also give an Rx if needed after exhausting natural remedies which I like.

Re: What type of Dr. does your LO see?

We dont really go to the Dr at all. The few times we have gone has been to a ped.
We have now moved. I am going to find a family dr or a DO they tend to be more holistic.
I'd like to also see a naturopath. Our ins does not cover but if they needed to be seen for something I'd like it to be a naturopath.
I too dont do the well baby checks no need to go in and have them exposed to the colds and germs flying around when they are healthy.
