Any good ones you know of? We're looking for less invasive, etc. We tried Dr. Wright (naturopath in Provo) and were not very happy with him. Thanks in advance.

Not sure I know anyone, but had been considering Dr. Wight.  Would you mind sharing a bit more detail?  Thanks!redface.gif

we took our baby in at 6 weeks, nothing wrong, just looking to establish a relationship. he weighed her in at 5 pounds 14 oz. She was almost 8 at birth so this really scared me. We had quite a bit of trouble nursing, so I panicked. He was nice, but proceeded to show me the growth charts and how low she was, and said she was FTT. He strongly recommended 'On Becoming BabyWise' which I learned is pretty frowned upon. He also said her hip was creaking and she may need a brace at some point.

 

I cried all the way home and all afternoon. I was scared I was starving her. We had a visitor come by and I told her about the visit and she looked at my baby and said there is no way that baby weighs less than seven pounds. Anyway, I had her re-weighed and she did weigh 8 pounds. Our midwife checked her hip and said the pop was in her knee, not the hip and would be fine.

 

I called his office and explained the weight issue and how upset I was and I never heard anything from him. I was very upset to not even hear anything back, and surprised he couldn't tell a 6 pound baby from an 8 pound baby. Bottom line, just not impressed.

Dr. Michel Whiting in American fork is good. He has been respectful to me and my choose in what to give my kids. I also LOVE the Nurse Practioner. She's great.

I haven't researched all the options in Provo/Orem because I live south. But I really like Dr. Fullmer at Utah Valley Pediatrics in Payson.

 

I met quite a few peds and family practitioners in the area who were authoritative and wouldn't listen to me or let me help make decisions, etc. Dr. Fullmer is great that way. Very respectful. He doesn't act like I'm a weirdo since I bf my kids past the first year and homebirth. I DO vax so I don't know how he reacts to non-vax patients.

I LOVE Dr. David Devonport. He is in Springville but worth the drive. I homebirth and do not Vac he is very supportive of my decsions. You can always get in if there is an emergancy, and the wait has never been longer then 15 min.  He is great and I will be sad when we move.
