Hi there, I'm hoping some of you might have pediatrician recs for me. We will be relocating to richmond early next year but I'm worried about finding an appropriate pediatrician. We will be moving either to chesterfield or the west end and neither place seems to be very crunchy. My son is 3, uncircumcised and though we do vaccinate we follow a conservative vaccine schedule so that if something goes wonky we know what caused it. And we generally skip the flu vax. Where we live now we have a wonderful complementary/intergrative ped. She is an MD but with an eye toward natural health. Are there any pediatricians like that... or at least open minded in Richmond? I sure hope so. We are so grateful for any info that might be provided.
Hi. We live in the West End area of Richmond, only been here about 3 months. When we moved here I joined http://www.naprichmond.com . As for a ped we are using Dr Scott Iwashyna @ http://www.westendpediatrics.com/ . He is really laid back and welcoming to attachment parenting. My oldest is partially vaxed (we stopped) and my youngest has had none....he is very okay with it. I'd recommend calling and setting up a interview with him.
Good luck on your upcoming move!
