I'm looking for a primary care provider. I have blue cross / blue shield and am just seeking someone who is kind and has an integrative perspective on health. Who will be supportive of a homebirth, etc.

Try The Marino Center for Integrative Health in Cambridge - all drs are supportive of intergrative medicine and there are holistic providers (acupuncture, massage, TCM, yoga etc. there.) The office still feels pretty "group-practicey" (not super warm and fuzzy) but I love that you get long appointments with the drs and they are very supportive of trying more natural options first.

Thanks. I've been looking at Marino and am definitely interested in giving Donna George a call. Do you have a PCP there? How are your feelings on them, as an individual doctor?
