Hi all. Well currently I am taking both my son and daughter to a regular pediatrician, but I would really like to find a naturopathic pediatrician or at least one who is open to using homeopathy and other natural treatments. I am so tired of always having dr's who prescribe antibiotics for everything. Can anyone give me any names of pediatricians in Jacksonville FL? Thanks all!

Jen

Progressive Pediatrics with Dr. Miles and Dr. Ceron and Hope Gunn. However, I think they are only accepting new patients who are babies. You may want to contact them and see if they can get you on a waiting list?

They are holistic, and awesome, and a great source of information and support.

Thanks. Actually I did take my son to Dr. Miles at one point and she was good. The only problem is that now our insurance is tricare prime and not tricare standard, and they dont accept that. Otherwise I would probably go to her...

There's a doctor named Patricia Elvir near WGV. I met with her before my son was born and she was very nice and very open to alternatives. I just decided to go with Progressive Peds b/c you can only get in as a newborn, and I felt like I could always switch later. Anyway, Dr. Elvir is friends with Drs. Miles and Ceron and may be an option for you.
