We've seen Dr. Fleiss and his staff since my first dd was born. I love it there.
The office, itself, is an old house - not some stuffy medical office. That was the first thing that I loved. I love that the midwives love him, and vice versa - he's totally supportive of out of hospital birth. I love that I do not get one hassle about not vaccinating. I said "we're not vaccinating" and they said "okay." No lecture, nothing. They had me sign a form though which I totally get. He's a BF advocate (as well as non-circ advocate) - he supports LLL in a major way. Never quick to prescribe antibiotics. The only down side is that unless you ask specifically, you usually don't see him. We usually see Laura, his nurse practitioner. She's amazing and sweet. I'm not sure how it's decided when he sees a child...we've seen him for our two first newborn visits, once when we thought Elea had botulism (middle of the night freak out we were having!! - turns out it was an ear infection!!) - and I think a few more times besides that. We typically only go for well baby visits so I think the nurse practitioners must do those for the most part.
I would definitely recommend the practice, for sure. So many AP families go there!!
