So tell me about Dr. Cloutier, and the practice in general? I'm coming from a family practice doc in CT who had a specialty in women's health, and I absolutely adored her - she always took the time to listen, I never felt rushed, she went out of her way to help and learn something new if I brought up a topic she didn't know about, she was cool with the idea of parallel care with a midwife (I wasn't pregnant while I lived in CT), she was knowledgeable about and (where she wasn't experienced with something) open to learning more about holistic and natural treatments and working with other "less mainstream" type practitioners. Plus, blood draws could happen right in the office there, which was handy. One less trip somewhere else, you know?

 

I'm hoping Dr. Cloutier will be similar - does it seem like she'd have a similar attitude/demeanor? I'm also interested in her approach to pediatrics, as I'm looking for someone to provide care for my child due in December. It would be super handy to be able to see the same person for me and the baby.

Hi there, Dr. Cloutier is my Primary Care doctor. I have seen her for two physicals in the past two years. I really like her! She does seem to be holistic minded. She recommends vaccines, but when I mentioned possibly having my two unvaccinated children see her as their doctor, she was fine with it and said she would honor my wishes, knowing that my decision was made from a place of research and knowledge.  I didn't know her when I was pregnant, or had little ones, so I don't know how things would have been, but my gut tells me she will support whatever you decide to do. she really listens, and I have never felt rushed.

 

She also does many things in house, like removing moles and skin tags. But lab work happens at another spot, just down the street.
