I need to find a new ped or FP/GP... anything. We had a ped we loved for 15 years but she retired and the new dr's joining the practice seem very anti - anything natural. My son was a preemie and has a VP shunt for hydrocephalus and has many developmental delays.He has had no vaccinations so far and I intend to keep it that way but he needs a physical so he ca begin physical therapy. I would like to be able to take him some place and not need to defend myself constantly; it seems to take the focus off the initial reason for the visit.
I would love to find someone who is educated in natural feeding and nutrition and knows a little about hydrocephalus and shunts but anyone who will not try to tell me that my life style is going to kill my child will do.
We live near Utica, Norwich, Oneonta, Cooperstown. All of his specialists are at Albany Med and we travel there at least once a month.
Thanks so much for any suggestions.
