I am looking for a pediatrician who is in the Mesa, Gilbert or Chandler that is comfortable with a more natural approach to choices. Someone who is ok with breastfeeding, cloth diapers, homebirth etc and will provide direction but not force medical things if we do not want them. Any suggestions?

We see Dr. Piacentine at Mesa Pediatrics. He's at the McClintock office. He's never questioned my parenting choices. Doesn't even bring up vaxing. Didn't bat an eye at extended bfing or cosleeping.

I don't think Mesa Peds is the most natural parenting friendly place but, Dr. Piacentine is great.

I think she's only taking newborns, but we see Dr. Sudha at Gatway Pediatrics in Chandler. I love her! She has never once pushed anything on me, encourages nursing (she's an LC), and co-sleeping.

We see Dr Sudha @ Gateway Peds in Chandler as well... pretty happy with her

We are non-vax, co-sleeping, and a breastfeeding family.

She actually has a staffed, in office, lactation consultant, Paulie. She has gone above and beyond to help me... Not sure what I would have done without her.

I like Dr. Carroll at Gilbert Pediatrics. He never questioned my decisions. He may not have liked my vax choices but he never argued with me about it and he was definitely BFing friendly. two other doctors were wanting me to supplement with my second daughter but he was happy to be patient with me while I figured it all out.
