Preferably somewhere between Kennebunk and Portland. Looking for someone who takes insurance (so not Kathryn Landon-Malone), and who won't give us grief about not vaxing. We're due mid-Jan, but at 35 weeks, it's creeping right up and I'm feeling some urgency around finding someone. My other two kids already have a ped, but I prefer not to use her and have been wanting to change anyway. We do well child checks mostly so doc is familiar with our family/children if something major happens, but mostly just treat with natural remedies and are pretty self-sufficient that way.
I prefer not to use UHC for Kids for personal reasons, I've tried David Strassler and Mary Raleigh in Bidd/Saco but they aren't taking new patients and I know a lot of folks love Dr. Balzer, but traveling to Gray for appointments doesn't work for us.
Any recommendations you have would be appreciated :-)
If you find someone let me know...we use Balzer but I must admit it's a drag traveling to Gray especially now that the kid is in school and we are selectively vaxxing. Yet I know of no one else between Saco and Portland other than the folks you have already mentioned.
clearly you have found a ped. by now, but K Landon-Malone's group will give you a little slip to submit to the insurance company, and they will reimburse you! That's what we do and it works just fine, it is just a small hassle but not too bad. It just doesn't work for MaineCare...so we put the baby under daddy's insurance. (I was a MaineCare patient...but they cut me off so now I'm uninsured. I guess I'd better eat my vegetables etc)
hope you found somebody you like! KLM is great for the vaccine issue, and in general as well. Very low-intervention approach.
