We are moving back to GA this week and I need to find a new Ped. We have been with Dr. Kute/ Lavania for about 5.5 years now but Id love to find someone closer. Yes, I know of Dr. Abrams.. but I still feel that he is too far. We need a No vax, intact, home birth friendly Dr.
I am not opposed to seeing a general Pract or Fam Dr. Any suggestions would be great.
I just thought I'd bump your post up. Anyone have a recommendation for a pediatrician or family doctor in this area?
I hope your move goes smoothly!
I have friends who go to Dr. Boudreaux at http://www.primarycarepediatrics.com/ I think she may be what you're looking for, and somewhat closer than Kute.
I am also looking for a ped/family doctor in the Buford area. We moved here from Pennsylvania in July and saw Dr Abrams this past week. It was for a quick sick visit for my son who has PANDAS. I just needed his strep blood levels checked and he seemed to question everything I said regarding his PANDAS diagnosis.
Maybe I am being too idealistic in what I want in a doctor...someone who not only supports our decision to not vax but who also will work WITH me and listen.
At this point, I am willing to go out of network, etc to find a good family doctor. The one we had in Pennsylvania was an integrative medicine practice that used homeopathy, focused on nutrition and didn't try to sell us expensive treatments, etc.
I wonder how long it will take to find a good doc around her. The two practices that I was really interested in are either booked or WAY too expensive (2,000 retainer!)
Anyone have any suggestions?? If I find one, I'll be sure to let everyone know...
