Ped review update
We just had our 1st appt with Dr. Bain in Frisco this week and I REALLY like her. It was for 1 and 3 year well-checks for my kids.
-She didn't assume we vax (we don't) and didn't give us any guilt trip or "schpiel" or even make us sign off on any vax.
-She discussed with me her general discomfort/frustration with western/allopathic medicine in general (other than in ER cases, etc) and how she frequently refers to alternative/complementary med people before western/allopathic people when her patients have concerns.
-She cheered me on for BFing past a year and was excited to hear I had BFed through pg and tandem BFed for 6 months.
-She didn't try to retract my intact 1 yo son.
-She had samples in her office of probiotics and coupons for organic groceries and things like that. She also discussed nutrition with us and promoted organic, whole foods and avoidance of HFCS, trans fats and processed foods. (She also has classes on nutrition and preventative health for her patients)
-She had a GREAT bedside manner with both kids and did really well with both, she actually seemed to LIKE kids (unlike some peds I've seen).
Anyway, 2 thumbs way up from us for Dr. Bain!http://www.healthykidspediatrics.com/html/Home.htm
