South Jersey- Gloucester County, looking for breastfeeding friendly pediatrician ASAP!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm looking for a breastfeeding friendly all around excellent pediatrician ASAP. We delay certain vacs, but we do vaccinate fully. I'm in Sewell/Mantua Township, willing to travel up to 20-30 minutes away.

 

Hoping to stop the trip over the bridge with three under two, into DelCo to visit non-breastfeeding friendly ped. We're kind of new to the area :)

 

Thanks in advance,

Our pediatric office is breast feeding friendly (as far as I know).  We go to Advocare Greentree Pediatrics.  Our pediatrician is Dr. Bryan Levey.  He leans towards the crunchy side of things (offers homeopathic options over pharmaceuticals in many cases) so I'd be shocked if he wasn't breast feeding friendly.  Their office does require vaccines.  They are in Marlton just a few minutes off 295.  Address is 127 Church Road, Suite 800, Marlton NJ 08053.  Their number is  (856) 988-7899.  Feel free to tell him the Foxx family (his favorite pain in the tush) sent you :)

You could try Advocare Kressville Pediatrics--they have an office in Sicklerville.  I've heard that they're open about vax issues and I've found them to be knowledgeable about caring for an intact boy.  I can't imagine they would not be breastfeeding friendly.  We've had great experiences with Dr. Maria Ibay and Dr. Mahbod Mohazzebi, btw. HTH!

Thanks for the suggestions, anybody have suggestions for any ped a little closer? I think Marlton is too far for me and there may be too much traffic up that way. I'll have to see how far sicklerville is... Anybody have a good/bad experience at Avocare Laural Pediatrics (Glassboro) or Avocare Township Pediatrics (Washington Township)?

 

Breastfeeding friendly doc preferably and my boy is intact as well (thank you PP for reminding me that is important). I am aware not all docs have the best information about caring for an intact boy because when we interviewed for our last pediatrician we met one who had NO CLUE and even criticized why we weren't circumcising and tried to scare us into it.

Hi there. We've been going to Advocare Laurel Pediatrics for about 8 years now. Perfectly supportive to breast feeding. Delayed vax haven't been a problem either. I prefer Dr. Bruner, Dr. Pasternak and Dr. Krohl. Good luck and welcome to the area!

I've been to Advocare Kressville in Sicklerville (they have another office in Cherry Hill) and while I loved that I wasn't hassled about vaxing, the office staff was rude one to many times and I found another ped. We now to go Advocare Lerch & Amato Peds in Sewell. It's in the Virtua building on Hurffville Crosskeys Rd. Everyone (except Dr.Lerch) has been great so far! The staff is always friendly and so is Dr. Amato!
