I have searched the forums and read through the few threads on this already so I'm curious if people are still recommending the same Pediatricians?

We would like someone that would be ok with delayed/non-vax (we think we will get some but not all, I'm due in January)

We would also enjoy if they were pro-BF

We can't really afford to do an ND because we will need the insurance to cover it and most don't .

Also, closer to mesa would be better but I'm ok with gilbert, chandler, tempe area as well.

Thanks!

yea there is only one MD on there, all the rest are ND's and the MD is way farther away than DH will let us drive. We can't do the ND because the insurance won't cover it.

I wonder if that doctor argwal would suggest an alternative doctor if you called him up? He might know of one.

Dr. Charles Martin is great. We actually found him from another referral on this forum!! 480.857.6316

He's pro-BF, been totally fine with delay/non-vax, super friendly, and really HONEST about the medical profession.

He'll give you his honest opinion instead of what you'd think he "should" tell you.

Not sure if you found a Doc yet but Dr. Ruth Tan Lim is an MD and Homeopath. Because she's an MD your insurance will cover her.

We go to Dr. Martin and we do like him a lot. I just want to warn that he's not really pro-extended breastfeeding (he told me to wean my ds at barely 13mo) and although he won't pressure you too much on vax, he does recommend them and will have you sign a waiver if you decline. He doesn't pressure too much. He's also very willing to discuss or set up an alternate schedule. I recommend him often.
