I just arrived on LI about 3 wks ago so, I don't have very extensive knowledge of Drs/healers but I did find someone that seems like she might be good. She's an MD and an Osteopath and was recommended by someone at the Waldorf school. I took the kids to her for the state-mandated school exam and she seems very knowledgeable about alternative stuff. We talked a little bit about homeopathics and a few herbal remedies and when I told her that I considered antibiotics a last resort for my son's ear infection, she told me where to find a healthfood store that would have herbal eardrops. We haven't had a more serious problem so she hasn't really been "put to the test" but I'll pass her info along. We went to her office in Massapequa but she mentioned she is at an office in Garden City some days.
Another recommendation that I did not follow up on bc he is farther from me and I decided to try Dr. Ferrara, is Dr Anthony Capobianco who, I was told, is also a DO and practices cranial sacral and homeopathy and is in Glen Cove (maybe closer for you?). His number is 516/617-5076. Good luck!
As I mentioned, we just moved to LI a couple of weeks ago and I am up to my eye balls in boxes and errands but I would love to meet other like-minded mamas at some point. I have two boys, ages 9 & 5. Other LI mamas should feel free to contact me!
