My DH and I recently moved to Columbus, OH. I'm starting the process of looking for some helathcare providers for our family. Here's what I'm looking for:
1.) A family Dr., or a Dr. for me and DH and a good Ped for DD. We just all went to a family doc, since NONE of the Peds where I moved from would take anyone who doesn't vax. This Dr/s needs to be ok with the fact that we don't vax. Also, openness to alternative medicine would be a plus. Or perhaps practice alternative medicine themselves. Although, having a Dr. that is covered by insurance for emergencies is something that I would like to have first and foremost, and I'm thinking that won't be covered by insurance.
2.) A good wellness chiro, or osteopath. Basically someone who we can all see for preventative, manipulative care. (So trained to see kids would be needed.)
3.) A naturopath. I've never seen a naturopath, as the alternative medicine options were very limited where I was, but I have basic knowledge of homeopathy, natural/herbal remedies, and would love to have someone who is much more knowledgeable than I in my arsenal.
I think that's all. If I could find a doc that did all of that, that would be a dream come true. Until then, send any suggestions you have my way! Thanks!
