Just wanted to post here because this has been a LONG search and I always looked here for insight.

Jessica Baker DO, in Media. She takes our insurance, is fine with no vax/selective vax, and even commented on how great it is for my son that he's still nursing at 2 1/2! She's holistic and has accupuncture in her office. We're really thrilled.

Hope this info is helpful to others ...

Sarah

Hi Sarah, I didn't know you were an mdc girl...cool! well, this is great to know about this doc...I am calling her immediately to see if she takes medicaid. I really hope so.

Thank Sarah04-
I called the office and was told that they couldn't schedule a "meet the doctor"appt. until I actually transferred my dd's records to her office! Did this happen to anyone else? I'm not going to transfer until I know we "click", but she looks great on paper!
I'd love to hear your experience!

Here's the link, I should have included it in the first post, sorry about that!

I didn't have any records transferred. I made an appointment just for myself (didn't want to put my kids through another lousy appointment). I did bring my kids with me, though, and when Dr. Baker was finished seeing me, I talked with her about seeing my kids.

As for the insurance, we don't have Aetna, we have this random private insurance and they took it with no problems.

She doesn't accept medicaid. No one does. I have tried multiple doctors and no one will accept it unless we are existing patients. Makes it hard when we've been trying to leave our ped office for almost a year. Guess we just won't see a doctor unless its for an emergency at the ER. That's ok, too. What the heck do we need a well visit for anyway if we're not vaccinating? Peace of mind is all. Ugh. Back to doing nothing about this.

I always like to hear of good docs in case we make the switch.... it is a hike for us but it may be worth it! Why are so many people having problems with medicaid?

just me I think. Because doctors will not accept new patients with it (so far, in my experience calling around). They will only "deal with it" if it becomes the insurance for a current patient. Makes it seem impossible to make a switch.
