Our peds are happy to let us make decisions about our kids' well being. We see a ND for natural stuff, but if we need a medical doctor, we are very happy with the peds we have. They are not (who is?) knowledgable when it comes to breastfeeding, but I just ignored them when they tried to counsel us on that. Otherwise, as I said, they have been very tolerant of our first delaying and now avoiding vax. There are three women in the practice, Sharon McManus, who is a D.O., owns the practice. She is kind of brusque...but at two in the morning or when your kid has had pneumonia for six weeks (don't ask me how I know...), she has an immense amount of empathy! Dr. Heugen is perhaps the easiest going when it comes to vax stuff, and we have also talked about co-sleeping and nursing with her (though our official line is that our kids "have a bed"). Our kids most often like to see Becky Wegner. She is really great with little kids.
One of the things I appreciate about this practice is that when I have information they haven't seen, rather than puffing up their chests and saying "who is the doctor here?!" they let us know that they'd much rather be giving out accurate information, and would love to see our sources, so that they can share with other parents.
They are at Pediatric Health Care at 18 and a Half and Mound in Sterling Heights, but if you took 696, that would be just a hop and a skip. if you're looking them up, you'd find their number under Sharon McManus.
(there are also two men in the practice, one of whom we know well, and like to see, as well--Mark Deprez, the other, Dr. Goza, we have never seen, but I have heard he's nice, too). Mark is probably the most conservative doc in the practice, but again, is willing to talk about stuff before he jumps to act.
