I am looking for a pediatrician that has more of a holistic and natural approach to medicine and diet. I live in the South Jersey area, and would love any recommendations particularly in the Camden/ Gloucester/ Burlington County areas. I guess some areas in Philadelphia (south and east) would work as well. I have a toddler and am due soon with my second child. Although my current pediatricians have a great reputation I would rather a pediatrician, or even a practice, that is more open-minded and knowledgable on alternative and natural approaches to care. Thanks!

I found a great Pediatrician in Marlton, NJ recommended by my Doula.   It is his own practice and he uses an integrative approach to medicine.  He is an MD who studies natural solutions on his own.  He is very personable and like to know each of his patients individually.  I was truly impressed.  Baby is coming in less than a month.   His name is Dr. Bryan Levy - KidsWell Pediatrics in Marlton, NJ.

I just realized I spelled Dr. Levey's name wrong.  The proper spelling is Levey and not Levy.  There is a Dr. Bryan Levy who is a pediatrician in Cherry Hill.

 

I hope we are all talking about the same doctor!   I was talking about Dr. Bryan Levey in Marlton...

I second the recommendation of Dr. Levey.  We just started with him but we are blown away.  I called yesterday because my son is having stomach aches for about a week and a half now.  We think it may be a side effect of his medication.  His nurse was so upset that the doc wasn't in for late hours on Thursday to see him.  I kept telling her it was okay and that it could wait.   He was so gentle and kind at our son's visit for a flu shot that he spend the next week running around the house with the cat's oral syringe saying "I'm Dr. Levey, time for your flu shot!".  I think we must have had 40 shots over the weekend ;)

 

Now understand that while he is definitely into alternative medicine, he is very pro vaccine and will explain (strongly) why.  It is fine with us as we do vaccinate our kids but I know one other mother here was put off by it.

They are - let me know how your search goes and what you think of Dr. Levey.  Tell him I said hi.

Where is Dr. Bryan Levey?

Does anyone know where Dr. Levey moved his practice? I would like to switch over to him, but it appears that his practice moved.

Dr Levey joined Avocare - Greentree Pediatrics, 127 Church Rd, Suite 800 in Marlton. 856*988*7899
He is busier now with more patients than when he had his own practice. You have to ask for him when making your appointment. He is still a great doctor.
