I'd love to get in a relationship with a pediatrician. that is completely okay with holding off on vax and the like. Anyone know of someone on the UWS or anywhere in Manhattan?
This guy was highly recommended by someone:
He accepts Medicaid (according to the website!)
Here's what a lady said about him:
We go to Tribeca Pediatrics in Tribeca. I agree that they are fine with whatever vaccination plan you have and haven't tried to pressure me to do anything specific (we do vaccinate, but did an alternate schedule that we came up with on our own). I love their office for regular stuff like vaccines, school forms, or "predictable" things, but I'm actually hoping to find another office because I don't love Tribeca pediatrics for more complicated or unusual health issues. I feel that all the doctors there are supportive and friendly, and the office is very efficient and follows up if you have called in with a problem, and there is always a doctor on call for emergencies, but because it is a big place, it can feel more rushed and crowded, and I do get the feeling that for an unusual problem that really requires a doctor to think outside the box, they would not do well.
So I would say for routine stuff Tribeca Pediatrics is great, but I'm actually interested in what other recommendations anyone has to list in this thread, because I'd love to find a pediatrician that is more of an alternative/traditional medicine mix and also has more time to spend individually with patients, in case we ever have more complicated medical issues that we need help with...
