Yup. A lot of my friends and clients use him. and love him! I also like that they are open 24 hours...they call it a prompt care but don't charge prompt care prices, just charge office visit co-pay.
Our peds are at 18.5 and Mound. They don't know much about breastfeeding (call LLL for that), but are comfy with all the other stuff, and are "supportive" of breastfeeding as long as it's going well or you have a plan. Being in contact with LLL with help you to have an evidence based plan. THey are all for working with you and seeing YOU as the expert on your child. They have all breastfed their babies (or their spouses did) so understand why you would want to. They are Pediatric Health Care, you'd find their number in the smartpages under Sharon McManus, but we like any of them...Becky Wegner is my kids' favorite, or Mark Deprez, though I'd say that as far as natural parenting goes, the most understanding is probably Dr. Heugen. She's great too!
