I've done a search but haven't come up with anything.
Right now we see a ped in Zionsville for our 3.5 year old. The last few times we've had to go in she has been really pushy about not vaxing and last time we were there she said the next visit we would have to start them. I know I don't have to do it...I'm just sick of the hassle. Plus I don't like the way she talked to my special needs toddler who has constipation problems...telling her she needed to be good and go in the potty. Really?
We're having some issues now that I really want her checked out on, lots of gagging and choking at night but I really don't want to take her to this Ped.
I am fine with a family doctor or Ped...I just want to find one that is not going to hassle me on my decisions.
Does anyone have any information?
I am willing to travel in the Indy area or Lafayette area.
Thank you all so much!!

We see Dr Kristen Gollnick at Northstar Ped's in Fishers.
She's super great, my children love her, and she's relaxed about a lot of things.

GL!

We have seen Dr. Golnick in the past, she is a great ped. We now see Dr. Young Park in Indy for our whole family. He is a family practice DO who is respectful about your position on vax/no vax, bf & intact friendly. He also practices eastern medicine as well, so we get the best of both worlds!

I've heard good things from friends about Dr. Gwolnick, but have never met her.

Our family was well-cared for by Dr. Park for years before moving out of state. We're moving back this Fall and one thing we are truly excited about is having him as our family's doctor again. He is the best! He truly is, as PP said, the best of both worlds. He has so much knowledge of 'alternative' treatment options and is inclined to using those before writing a script.

In my experience with all my children, one of whom was born while we were patients with him, there is never a vax hassle. The nurse checking you in typically says, 'will we be doing injections today?' and when/if you say 'no' that is the end of it...she notes it on your chart and it is done. Love that!

His office is on the northwest side of Indy...off Guion Rd where it meets 465. There can be a long wait for new patient visits, so call ahead and start planning. He is totally worth the wait.
