I would go anywhere in the Phx metro area for the right person but I would prefer to stay in the East Valley. We need a pediatrician who is integrative. My 15 mo daughter's weight is not what it should be and I would really like to find someone who will explore food intolerances. The ped that we are seeing right now is fine, but is really pushing dietary supplements and I am really not sure that is the way to go.

I would prefer an MD, but am open to an NMD.

Thank you for any help.

I see an NMD at 32nd St and Thunderbird. You can call the office below or her other location since it is closer to you.

Dr, Jessi at naturallynuturing.net is pretty good. She's testing DD for food intolerances as we have the same issue with weight. DD is almost 15 m.o. and is just under 19 pounds. She's in Gilbert too.

I haven't dealt with the issue you're describing but my DD has sensory issues that lead to toe walking and other aversions and our ped didn't even hesitate sending her for physical therapy and occupational therapy evaluations.

We see Dr. Piacentine at Mesa Pediatrics. I don't care for any of the other doctors there but, he's really good. I think he only practices at the Guadalupe & McClintock office:
