HI there-
I'm a former PA mom who has been living in NC for the last 5 years. My husband just accepted a job in Warminster and we're moving back to PA. I have 3 kids including a newborn.

I know about Woodmed in quakertown. We will likely be living somewhere along the 309 corridor or out toward Doylestown, Pipersville, etc. or possibly lower bucks like Churchville.

I'm anxious as we LOVE our family practice doc here. No pressure, no signing of waviers, respectful of parent choice even though he's a pretty mainstream doc. I'm looking for some options in PA. I know Kimberton has some docs and apparently maybe Doylestown. I see Larry ******'s name pop up but can't find many posts about him on MDC ??

Lansdale would be a good plan as we're renting for a year until our house down here sells, and when we go to buy we'd probably be somewhere around Hatfield, Souderton, Telford, Sellersville, Lansdale..

Any feedback on him? I'd be less concerned if I didn't have a newborn but w/ a newborn I want to make sure we have someone lined up fairly quickly for WBV (we do them but a little more spread out than typical) and in case of urgent need.

Bumping this.

Is there some reason the Lansdale area moms aren't using him? I found an old thread and it looks like people are driving to Kimberton, etc. from Lansdale. He's listed on a few sites as non vax friendly so I assumed someone here would have had experience w/ him? Bummer.

We are looking at a few different areas, including Southampton/Ivyland/Churchville to rent a house initially. It looks like Dr. Silver in glenside might be an okay drive, or the Mt. Airy doc that a few people like. I'd prefer to head more towards Lansdale from the Churchville/Southampton area though as when it is time for us to buy vs. rent I suspect we'll be more towards Lansdale.

Any other suggestions? Getting anxious about finding someone...it is such a tough process and I'm mourning the loss of the family practice doc we see here in NC.

I live in the Lansdale area & I've never heard of Dr. Larry ******. Maybe he just doesn't take our insurance? A quick google search showed him as being in Philadelphia at Temple University Hospital. What website did you hear about him from? We've lived here for 4 years & really disliked our experience with the peds at CHOP Highpoint, however, I have a non-vaxing friend who likes them just fine. They are mainstream and have vax propaganda all over the office but she just signed the waiver & that was that. I was going to switch over to the Kimberton Clinic in Kimberton, but we're moving so I'm just going to start over when we move. HTH.

i really like the practice i bring my boys to - horsham pediatrics. they are definitely mainstream, but don't give you issues if you decide to go against the norm. they do want you to sign off if you skip a vax though, which doesn't really phase me as we are in a super litigious state and i can see where they're coming from! all three docs are very nice and they respond to calls well. feel free to pm me with questions! they're on horsham road, not far from 5 points.

I take my kids to Just 4 Kids pediatrics in Harleysville, which is not too far from Lansdale. They are mainstream but are non-vax/delayed vax friendly and very respectful of our parenting choices in general.

For myself I see Dr. Rebecca Nice at Wellness Works in Chalfont. She is a DO, very holistic and and has been wonderful to work with (the practice is very new so I just started seeing her).

I hope you find someone you love and welcome back to the area!

Sus, I would love to find out more. Can you PM me? I thought he might be a good backup plan but realized no one here was seeing him, so something had to be wrong there.

DH called Woodmed today and they said they'll take DC for an acute sick visit if need be but they said it takes several months to get in for a "well" visit. I'd like to have a backup plan as my newborn is only 6w old right now.

It seems like some docs are okay with delayed schedules but not so much with total non vaxers. When my oldest was born we were in PA and started w/ one of the CHOP affiliated practices in Sellersville I think? I forget the name sadly. The doc we saw there was irritated we didn't have a paci on hand for DS's exam at like 2 days old, and they also had some sort of paperwork along the lines of "if you don't want to vax fully and on schedule, we aren't the practice for you." We ended up seeing someone in Allentown for a while and she was very good with BFing advice, supported cosleeping, etc. but was very provax...but tolerated us

Camelfam-do you know if Dr. Nice will take non vaxed children? We all see a great family practice doc down here in NC and I'd love it if we could all go to one office, kwim?

Amom'slove-Dr. ****** comes up on several lists as a non vax friendly doc. I think he's a DAN doc. His name is Lawrence ******...if you google his name and Lansdale and non-vax I think it should come up. I realized no one was seeing him though and figured there must be a reason. Not sure if he's even still in the area but he's listed on a few non vax sites.

I was not happy w/ CHOP KidsFirst Highpoint; I don't know Dr. ******.

Sorry for the confusion. If you'd like to know about CHOP then PM me.

DH just got home from work. I think we might have seen a CHOP affiliated practice in Perkasie maybe? I can't remember since it was 6+ years ago LOL.
(eta: it wasn't a good situation for us. I wish I could remember exactly which practice it was).
Sorry I misunderstood, Sus!

Anyone have a BFing friendly dentist recommendation by any chance?

I've been in this area for years and haven't heard of him. I'd be thrilled if he is here and is an awesome doc as we drive 45 mins to Kimberton for Dr. Fried. Dr. Fried is good and all, but he loves the tetanus vx (the only one he advocates) and it is damned expensive if you don't have insurance. I have thought about going to Kids First in Harleysville as I have heard good things and they are so much closer. I hate doctor hopping, though.

Ok, now I see him online. He looks to have good reviews. Why don't you call his office and ask a few questions or do an interview when you get here? Just because I haven't heard of his office doesn't mean he may not be great. Good luck!

A woman I know just started taking her kids to Dr. ******. She drives from the Mainline area, so it's a hike. So far, she really really likes him. Since he is only 2 miles from me, I am going to have to check him out.

Thanks for the update! It sounds like he might be worth checking out. I"d love to hear from anyone who ends up seeing him. I have a young infant so I'll probably be choosing someone soon for a WBV.

We're finally in the souderton/hatfield area so it is time to make a decision

hey vincie! i think she's referring to me. i do see dr. ****** now and LOVE him. he's extremely supportive of all of the non-mainstream decisions we've made. he's made his own non-mainstream choices for his children as well, which feels great. i'm actually about to call him this morning for another appt (my poor 7yo DS broke his finger so we gotta get it checked). i googled his name bc i wanted to make sure i had his number right and found this thread!

anyway, we haven't been going to him long but i'm extremely grateful to have found him.

awesome, Incamama. I totally appreciate the feedback. I need to at least set up an appt for my youngest for a WBV.

Do they have long waits generally?

I imagine no sick/well separate waiting areas since they are family practice?

Our previous doc in NC was awesome and we had long waits and no separate waiting rooms, so those are definitely not deal killers for us...just curious. Good docs are worth the wait. I just have 2 older kiddos who will hate waiting so I'm wondering how far behind he usually runs. When it was just two of them it wasn't so bad LOL.

I hope the finger is okay and feels better soon! Sending healing thoughts your way!

I'm so happy to have found this thread. I've been taken my daughter to a family doctor that I go to, but I don't like him for neither of us. I just don't drive right now and it's within walking distance.

She's 1 and non-vax and we'll be driving again in a couple of weeks, so I wanted to start looking for a new doctor, not so mainstream.

I'm also very happy to see AP moms that live in the area. I've been living in Hatfield for about 2 1/2 years and it's been difficult for me to find moms that are into the same things as I am. Maybe we should start a thread for a playgroup? Or there's already one?

Yes, we see Dr. ****** in Lansdale, PA. He is a family doctor, so we are actually all patients, but we originally went to him for my son only and liked him so much. We travel quite a distance from NJ to see him - we just could not find a doctor here whom we truly trusted.

Dr. ****** is a breath of fresh air. He is just about the kindest person you would ever meet. He truly cares for all of us - it's just who he is.

I have never had a problem getting an appointment when my child was sick. His office staff is very nice and helpful - they have gone above and beyond for us on more than one occasion. (I have left doctors whose staff treated me badly.) He returns phone messages promptly.

I cannot say enough nice things about him.

sorry i never came back to this thread! yes, i agree with Michelle31. Dr. ****** is so kind and caring. The most i've ever had to wait is about 20 minutes or so and that was when we'd had an emergency and asked to be seen right away. they didn't hesitate to tell us to just come in, as soon as we could get there. any time we've had an actual appointment we've only waited a few minutes. there is only one waiting room, so no sick/well areas. there are some toys for the kiddos to play with, though my littlest one just likes walking back and forth down the long hallway.

the best part about the practice is by far Dr. ****** himself. he's such a warm person. Obviously cares so much about all of his patients, is very gentle with all of my kids. He's not an alarmist in any way about things i've seen other docs get all in a tizzy about. his presence is very calming and reassuring.

My hubby saw Dr. ****** the other day. I'm happy that they got him in pretty quickly. The office staff was so-so, nothing stellar. The receptionist seemed like she couldn't be bothered to talk to me. Dh was having an anxiety attack issue. We had to wait well over an hour to be seen and the waiting room was very crowded. I ended up leaving because there were so many people at one point. A woman came in, thought she had an appointment but wasn't in the schedule. They took her right there on the spot. That's nice, but they took her before they took my hubby who had been waiting for 45 mins at that point. She was there for a physical (you could hear all of the conversations with the receptionists as it's a tiny space). When dh was finally seen the appointment lasted 5 minutes. He was prescribed an anti-depressent for the anxiety issue, despite the fact that it's very contra-indicated with his history. Dr. ****** is VERY nice, very warm, but I wasn't overly happy with the experience. DH is going to go back for a follow up visit. We are thinking maybe it was just a really busy day and he wants to go one more time. I don't know if I will be taking ds here, though. I love the idea that I wouldn't have to fight with the vaccine issue, but I'm not crazy about anything else in the office. I realize this is not a popular opinion in this thread, but just wanted to share my experience. Hopefully, it's not the norm.

I recently saw this while looking for another thread of mine.

Mrs Mike, thanks for sharing your experience. I took my ds2 in to see dr. ****** a few months ago for a wbv...it was okay. I liked him, like his stance on vaxes, but am not entirely convinced he's the doc for us for several reasons. I appreciate reading your input.

I know this thread is a bit old but I was wondering if you had any luck with either Dr. Larry ****** or another ped. in the area.  I was doing a search in google and this thread came up.  I am not thrilled with our current ped office and I am trying to find some new that is vaccine schedule friendly.

 

Thanks!

I know a lot of people complain about the CHOP offices, but I have had no big  issues Kids First Indian Valley.  I am pretty laid back, so I tend to ignore a lot of what they say, but it's close, so it works for us.  We have DS on a vax schedule, and they do make us sign waivers, but it's never a big deal.  They have a copy of the vax schedule in the file and are ok with it.  On Dr. made a negative comment at the fact that I was nursing DS past one, but again I just ignored her and never scheduled with her again.  All the other Drs are  great.  I like the comfort of knowing if something is ever really severly wrong, we are in good hands.  You can also get a CHOP nurse on the phone 24 hours if you have a problem or question.

Hi there we live in Aston, Pa and we are 45 mins. away from doctor ******.  We found that he is a fabulous doctor and a great DAN doctor!  We use him and pay out of pocket when we go to see him.  My son has autism and we started to see him almost a year ago, and things could not be better for us.  We also have a cousin (daughter is autistic) and she uses him as a DAN doctor.....def. a good choice and would highly rec. him.

Hi there, welcome to PA   Better late than never, but I just saw your post.  We have been using Dr ****** since 2000.  We love him. He is totally not pro Vaccine...love that as I don't believe in them myself.  I have gotten the feeling that he does not believe in them either, so I doubt he will encourage you to get them for yourselves or your children. 

 

His Bedside manner is excellent, never makes you feel rushed, always wants to be sure that you have asked any questions you might have; and if you call with a question, he or someone will call you back in a timely manner!

 

I also appreciate that he makes me feel like I too am a valued member of my "health team."  He really seems to accept and appreciate that while he is a doctor...I KNOW MY BODY best of all.  He is open to hearing what I think and say and NEVER gives you the "yes, yes number 2 with a condescending smile."  If I have some idea of something that he isn't already familiar with, which is rare because he really is on his game and thinks outside of the box when needful, then he checks it out and gets back to me.

 

We love him to bits and I would highly recommend him as both a real human being and a great doctor.

We use Dr. ****** as our family Dr and have taken our daughter to see him since she was born.  We love him!  I can't say enough wonderful things about him.  He is warm and caring and so good at what he does.  He has been very open and honest with us as we navigate Parenthood and decided to Vax or not. He recently moved to a larger, very nice office.  His staff is just okay.  I believe they are both nurses and  their office skills are lacking some.  No one ever notified us of the office moving, we showed up for the appt and there was a sign that had the new address on it, and I have overheard them giving advice to patients that I know for a fact Dr. ****** wouldn't agree with but to me Dr. ****** is worth these small issues.  I've never had to wait longer then 20 mins and I never feel rushed there.
