Quick question: which Doc @ TLC? We have Dr. Matsumoto and she said I need to put our dd on formula. She's below the "charts" - also said sleeping on the breast causes tooth decay. I'm looking for a new practice, but I was curious because our experiences are so different. It's a shame because they're so close to me, and I think she's a good Doc otherwise... thanks!
The docs at TLC pediatrics in Ahwatukee are great! They're on 40th st right off of Pecos, so very close to Chandler. I love love love them so far. The doc really spent time with us, observed my son (well baby visit), and was just cool and nice. They have 2 sep entrances and waiting rooms for sick and well, I like that a lot. I was seen on time (gasp) and the staff was professional and quick.
My former ped was Dr. Martin with Southwestern Pedicatrics in Gilbert (Val Vista & Pecos). He was OK with the non-vax, would ask "are we vaxing today" and not push it when I said no. He did say he'd get pushy if there was an outbreak of something though. I did not like his practice - they kept me waiting at least an hour for each appt, even when I was the only one there (he likes to see non-vax kids 1st thing). The staff was pro-formula and the doc was pretty weight-chart focused with very little knowledge of BFing issues.
That said... I know plenty of people who adore him. They all have chubbier kids than mine though.
