Does anyone know any good pediatricians in the East valley? I live in Chandler but anywhere in a 20 minute radius would be ok. I'm not picky on male/female. Any ideas? TIA!!!!!

I really like Dr. Piacentine at Mesa Pediatrics. I'm not crazy about any of the other doctors there as they are quick to pass out antibiotics and push vaxes but, Dr. Piacentine seems to really appreciate the fact that we don't give antibiotics unless absolutely necessary and he doesn't question us about vaxes. He's very AP in his approach.

The only negative I can think of about him is that he does pass out parenting advice but, you can take it or leave it.

Dr. Sudha at Gateway Pediatrics in Chandler is my ped. I love her! She's an LC and is very pro-breastfeeding and allows for delayed./seletive vaxing with no questions asked.

Thanks for the responses so far, I am going to have to set up a few interviews!

We go to Gilbert Pediatrics. The one we go to is at Greenfield and Baseline, but there's another one (south of there, I think). We see Melani, the NP.

We go there because my NMD said they are okay with non-vaxing. I have only seen Melani, and have no personal experience with any of the other docs. She hasn't lectured us about not vaxing.

I usually take my kids to our NMD. I just take them to the ped for well checks.

Dr. Sudha is only accepting newborn patients (which works for the OP), seen immediately after birth. Our baby is now 8 weeks old so we were unable to be seen by Dr. Sudha.
