Before i had children, i never went to the doctor. I have been blessed with good health. Since having children, ive had to endure incompetencies from pediatricians and obgyns over and over again. I always go in with the attitude-i WANT to trust you, but hell, why do you say such stupid things?
Why do i use a ped that i dont trust? Because to get on wic, you need to have the your childs lead tested which requires visit to the doctor.
Right now, i am doing my best to find a ped i can trust, but they dont take medicaid. I guess i should pay out of pocket.
Also, like myself, my children have been blessed with good health, and the only reason to go to a doctor is for vaxes and well checks.
I agree that western medicine has its uses, and im all for it, but it certainly has its limitations.
Also, if a doctor has an opinion on a subject, especially a subject that is known to be contraversial, they could at least admit, that there is a contraversy, and they advocate this particular position for these particular reasons.
Just be honest about it, dont TALK DOWN to me. Just because i pushed a baby through my vagina and look a bit dishevelled and sleep deprived does not mean i am an imbecile (or that im not sure i can spell dishevelled)
I would love doctor i can trust. And i have noticed they are a little more educated on breastfeeding now, especially docs who have had their own children.
I would rather see a naturpath for real health questions and that is definitely out of pocket.
