Me me! I'm in Columbus now, as of last month. We are loving it here and have been going to the Saturday farmers market and getting most of our meats, eggs and veggies there. We found one farmer that has milk, you have to go to his farm to get it but he's only about 20 minutes away.
We don't vax and our ped didn't give us any grief, but not sure on the state insurance. We went to Northside Peds and just told the nurse 'we aren't doing any at this point' and left it at that. We have a 5 year old and a 1 year who were getting a physical for preschool and our 1 year was getting her first doctor visit ever, so I expected trouble-nothing.
There is a local DO who is getting ready to open an Integrated health practice (she will practice some alterative medicine) soon, and she is a family practice doc who is much more preventative minded and not vax-pushy. She is at Sandcrest Family Medicine or something like that.
If I went to any doctor that bad mouthed breastfeeding I would seriously walk out, that's just plain ignorant and stupid!
I even found a dentist who is a certified mercury removal dentist who wrote a book called "Tooth Truth" that is going for over $100 for his out of print book!!! He is downtown, name is Frank Jerome. I def didn't expect to find this guy here in this small town, thought I'd have to go to Indy for sure. Nice guy!!
It's FUN here, it really is, lots of things to do for families in such a small town.
