I've lived in Boston for over three years now and could deal with a doctor. I could drop in the family medicine center at BMC, that's what I did when I needed to see a doc a couple years ago, but frankly I'm sick of the billing problems I have each and every time we go through BMC.<br><br>
(They don't collect our copay or send us a bill. Instead then go straight to the collectors! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/splat.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="splat">)<br><br>
Anyway, anyone got a good doc in Boston?

I used to work in Boston and I saw Karen Wood at the Harvard Vanguard center in Copley. She was pretty alternative. I know she suggested I get accupuncture treatments once. I liked her fine, though I never really felt like she knew me at all. She was nice, she just didn't remember me. I guess that's the way it is with managed care. I think she only works part time and is home part time with her kids. A friend of mine suggested her to me because she really liked her and she was very supportive of natural childbirth. I really liked her NP, Anne Krekis.<br><br>
Good luck!

don't know if somerville would work for you, but.....DS and DP go to Dr. Berkowitz-Shelton at the Davis Square Family Practice. He's GREAT!!! We can't say enough good things about him. I would go to him, but I get free insurance as a student at Harvard.<br><br>
One thing is that he is also a homeopath and prefers to start treatment with homeopathy before drugs if that's what you're interested in.<br><br>
good luck!<br>

I second Dr Berkowitz-Shelton. DP, DD, and I all see him and we love him. He takes time, suggests alternative treatments is ok with our non vaxing. He told me he has some ec'ing patients. (not us) Just a very open minded guy and the staff is also great. It is 1 block from the T station<br><br>

Thanks, folks! I'm going to check into who my insurance covers! I need to go in for a physical (it's been 2 years) this summer and I have some problems I want to bring up (hip pain mostly) but I didn't want to deal with the hassel I had been running into!<br><br>
And someone who likes alternative treatments would be wonderful! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

If you're in Boston proper, I like Dr. Nina Cotran at Brigham & Women's in their Women's Health Center (located right in the hospital building). The rest of my family sees Dr. Laura Zucker in Arlington, and we like her a lot too.<br><br>

Dr Zucker is actually part of the same call group as Dr Berkowitz-Shelton. I have spoken to her on the phone several times and realy liked her.
