Hello! Looking for some advice on pediatricians/family practice in the MD/DC/VA metro area.
We just moved to the Silver Spring area from a very liberal west coast city. I've been having a real rough time finding a pediatrician that even remotely fits the bill. Looking for someone (either MD, OD, Naturopathic, or even a Family Nurse Practitioner) that is supportive/encouraging of: breastfeeding, alternative vaccination schedules, integrative/wholistic approach, basically just an alternative to the standard medical practices that are going to find a million things wrong with my kiddos. I want to feel involved in my children's healthcare and feel like our care provider respects and understands our lifestyle.
Can anyone recommend someone to me via PM? I would be oh so grateful. We have insurance that we would ideally like to use (BCBS) and would be willing to travel up to 20 miles from the Silver Spring area for the right practice. I haven't had much luck researching pediatricians/family practice clinics online and peer-to-peer recommendations would be very valuable.
Thank you so much! <3
