I am very happy to have found this site and truly hope it can help me find what I need for my DD. My DD is 2 years old and has currently been going to Tenafly Pediatrics, I have nothing negative to say about this practice but just felt that dealing with multiple Drs and being prescribed antibiotic after antibiotic for my child I feel that i would like to deal with a practice/ pediatrician where the first suggestion isnt antibiotics but some more natural medicines. I am still trying to do research on the whole holistic, natural way of medicine but I do know that my child has never been a 100% and meanwhile her immune system is taking a beating with so many antibiotics that she has taken. If anyone can recommend a good practice or can point me in some good directions it will be greatly appreciated.
If you want to stay in Tenafly check out Dr. Bacha on Tenafly Rd, right at the corner of West Clinton Ave. He's a DO, has no problem with delayed/no vaccines, is a really nice guy, and definitely doesn't push antibiotics.
There is also Dr. Rosen at the Whole Child center in Oradell. I haven't used him myself because they didn't use to take any insurance at all and they still don't take the kind we have but I've heard wonderful things about him. This is the website for him http://www.wholechildcenter.org/ .
We saw Dr. Bacha when I lived in Bergen and I loved, loved, loved him. My doula also uses him for her kids so I know he's natural friendly!
