I use Dr. Robert Bloom at Southfield Pediatrics. I find him to be very reasonable and willing to have thoughtful discussion. He recommends following the CDC schedule for vax but was supportive of an alternative schedule I proposed. I like their office hours, availability and locations and several other physicians there, specifically Dr. Kapan and the other Dr. Bloom. I've learned not to schedule appts outside of that group. I would only recommend them to you if you're a middle of the road mama.
Welcome to the D!! Are you totally new here, or are you coming back home?
Thank you SO much for your recommendations-it's very helpful! I was trying to come back home, which is in the Toledo area, but a job brought us to Royal Oak. So, we're closer to home but totally new to the area. I'm also so happy to hear about the midwives you mentioned. My first birth was at an ABC in Chicago, and I really would like a home birth next time. I'm so glad to know there are great midwives in the area! I'm feeling good about the area already:)
I'll start looking into our insurance for the docs you mentioned. Do you happen to know anything about the peds at Watch Me Grow Pediatrics in West Bloomfield? I saw their practice mentioned on another website and when I called to inquire they said they work with alternative vaccination schedules. Their docs are Dr. Mary Sue Sylwestrzak and Dr. Robert Roman.
Thanks again for everything!
