I did a search, but found just one recommendation for pediatricians (maybe I should expand my search terms). We just found out that our family doctor is closing his practice, and now we need a good family doctor. We like our pediatrician just fine, but need someone for the grownups. Any recommendations? We'll go anywhere in Utah County, but Provo/Orem/Springville are most convenient for us.
I went to the Utah Valley Health Clinic and saw Dr. Wright.
He is a naturopathic doctor. I've never seen one before but in general, I like the approach. One of the things I like best about the approach is that you take all less invasive measures first, and see if they work, before you take more invasive measures to treat some condition. Dr. Wright took a lot of time with me and was really good at listening and discussing things with me. He realized that *I* am in charge of my health care and that *I* make the final decision about any treatment--this is the biggest problem that I have had with other doctors I have seen in this region. He also practices obstetrics but I don't know much about how his OB practices are different from a normal doc. I saw him to find some treatment options for depression.
I actually found him by doing a search on this forum.
How about you? Have you found anyone good yet?

I have since moved by Tooele, but Dr Johnson never gave me any grief in 8 years over my vaccine stance. They are wonderful. Dr Johnson was a referral from a local homebirth midwife.
Also, do naturopaths do immunizations? We do a delayed/alternative schedule so I need someone who will work with that.

The UVHC does NOT accept insurances. However, let them know and they give you a superbill you can then send into your insurance for reimbursements.
I hope you will see Dr Jeff Wright and the wonderful varied treatments and clinicians at the UVHC Provo SOON.
