I just moved here from Virginia and am looking for relaxed docs who are OK with minimal vaccines for kiddos.  Especially someone who is trusting and supportive of their patients and do not put themselves in an authoritative role.  It'd be great if they take FEP Blue Cross/Blue Shield, too.  I need the following:

 

- Family Practice

- Pediatrician 

- Endocrinologist

- OB/Midwife (for annual checks, etc)

- Chiropractor

- Dentist

 

Thanks! :)

 

(PS if you're in Dayton and have any other suggestions for newbies or want to make a new friend, I'm looking for those things too!)

Pediatrician - Dr. Nancy Hesz at Star Pediatrics in Xenia - it's a little bit of a drive, but she's really great

 

OB/Midwife - I really love the midwives at Lifestages (based at Good Samaritan Hospital, but they have some satellite offices too). Also, Dr. Horlacher at Miami Valley is great. There's a group of midwives at MVH too - Midwives of Dayton I think? Some people really love them. I love *some* of them, but not all, just my personal opinion though.

 

Chiropractor - Dr. Christine Dobran in Kettering, hands down. She is super, awesome, fantastic. I can't sing her praises highly enough :-)

 

Dentist - For adults or the kids? I've got nothing for the adults, but Dr. Jody Wright at Wright Smiles in Springboro is awesome. The other dentist in her office is really nice and quite excellent as well.

 

So, that's not everything, but it's something to get you started :-)

 

If you are looking to make friends / connect, there's a La Leche League group that meets once a month in East Dayton. I think the second Tuesday at 7 pm. I haven't been in a few years, but I met a lot of nice moms when I was attending a few years ago.

 

We live about 40 min. SW of Dayton now, but I group in Kettering and lived in Dayton the last 5 years before we moved, so I'm pretty familiar with the area :-) Lmk if you have more questions - you can send me a pm if you want.

Thank you so much for your recommendations!  We started using Dr. Dobran and LOVE L-O-V-E her!  Thank you so much :)  

 

I'm also interested in hearing if you (or anyone) has heard of good, non-alarmist high risk OBs or MFMs?  We're planning to TTC in a few months and I want to have some names for if/when we get pregnant.

 

Thanks again!
