Want somebody that won't freak out about me having a homebirth, delaying vax, breastfeeding, doesn't hand out antibiotics like candy, etc.
If you have any recommendations please share!
I can tell you, steer clear of Sheri Tysch. Do not like her one bit. And she won't even see you if you aren't following her vaccine schedule anyway.
I too am trying to find a good family doc for all of us, rather than just a pediatrician. Let me know if you get anywhere with this and I'll do the same.
A great pedi in TO is Dr Kawasaki. She's very MDC. Re: Dr Peterson, I've heard that's she's great with everything other than vaccines. A friend ended up firing her after yet another lecture by the doc when they again declined whatever vax was on the 'schedule'. We see Dr Hughes in Ventura at Surfside peds and LOVE her. As a co-sleeping, intact, non-vax, full term nursing, tandem nursing, etc family we feel supported and respected but also given the information from the 'other side' when asked. Not once have I been made to feel like my decisions were wrong and because of that I trust her when the kids need a more intensive treatment than perhaps I'd be comfortable with initially.
