<p>Is it too much to hope for? I just moved to Framingham from CT and need to find a new PCP for insurance purposes. I left behind my favorite doctor ever, a family practice doc who specialized in Women's Health. She was amazing, both for me and with my friends and their kids, so I would totally have been thrilled to have her be my children's doctor (once they arrive - we're newly married and TTC). But an hour and a half is too far to go, so I'm looking up here. Any suggestions?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm looking for someone who takes their time and listens well, who is on the "crunchy" side - friendly to and willing to work with midwives and other "alternative" practitioners I might want to work with down the road - and who is size accepting (I'm on the fluffy side). I also am more comfortable with a female doctor, though if the best doctor around were male, I'd consider it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here's what I got when I searched my insurance company's database for Family Practice folks who are close by and accepting new patients. Any recommendations from this list, or great people who aren't on the list? I'm willing to go more than 10 miles away for someone super great...</p>

<p>Welcome to the area!  I'm in neighboring Ashland, and named Heather also:D</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Alas I wish I had a rec for you. I see Dr. Cooper at the Framingham campus at Southboro Medical, and he's....okay. I have had recs on her for the midwives at Harvard Vanguard, but I have yet to actually go and make an appointment. I've always tended to find a so-so PCP and then have a great midwife, but my old one is in Beverly....a bit far for my tastes.</p>

<p>Thanks for the welcome, Heather!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It looks like a couple of the doctors above are part of the Marino Center, which was recommended in another thread.</p>

<p>If there is anything else you need to know about the area, I'll be glad to give you my personal recs. I've lived here for over a year as an adult, but I grew up on the outskirts of MetroWest (Medway), so I just like I'm home again.</p>

<br><br><p>Thanks witchygrrl, I appreciate the offer - sorry I  missed it earlier! I'm also seeking homebirth midwife recommendations if you have any. My husband's dentist and the oral surgeon I unfortunately needed to find are both great so I'm all set with that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, if you also have suggestions for places to meet some cool people that would be great. I'm not working a 9-5 kinda job and have no kids just yet, so I'm finding it hard to connect with new friends.</p>

<p>I wish I knew more about homebirth midwives. My one and only was born at the North Shore Birth Center in Beverly, but I lived in North Andover at the time. I'd say PaigeCPM would be the one to message about that. She's a midwife in the SouthCoast of MA, so she knows who is out there.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway, as for places to meet people, I'm not the greatest at that either, but I'd suggest the Natick Winter Farmer's Market. I always manage to strike up conversation there when I go. I love how there's essentially a farmer's market all year round now. They have it at the Johnson School on Rt. 27. There always lots of families with young kids there, so the age range would be right:D</p>

<p>Yes, I'm hoping that PaigeCPM has some helpful hints, I PM'ed her.</p>

<p>You know, now that you mention it, I just heard about the Natick Winter Farmer's Market the other day! And maybe there was a post about a meetup there? Can't remember, I'll have to search for it. But that's a cool suggestion, thanks :)</p>

<p>The Marino Center is an incredible place, however, none of the female family docs are accepting new patients.  (I was looking for my daughter.)  We went with the new male doctor for our family, Dr. Groode, and have been very happy.   I have heard they have a new female family practitioner starting in the next few weeks.   Good luck and welcome!</p>

<p>And... I loved our homebirth midwive!.  Sarafina Kennedy and Jessica Petrone.  They are co-primary midwives so both come to all of your appointments; it made me feel so much safer and at ease while in giving birth.  Their practice is based down by the Cape, but they came to Natick for me.  <a href="http://www.homebirthmatters.com/index.html" target="_blank">http://www.homebirthmatters.com/index.html</a></p>

<p>Thanks for the welcome, NewMamaK, and for the recommendations too! Did Sarafina Kennedy and Jessica Petrone come to you for prenatal visits, or did you go to them?</p>

<p>A friend of mine just gave me a rec for Heather Laier. She's in Reading, but my friend is in Ashland, like me. She was pretty hands off for my friend (who is a Christian Scientist), and overall, my friend was pleased with her. I can PM her phone number if you like.</p>

<p>Merino Center in Wellesley and Harvard Vanguard on Rt 9 has a female Osteopath that would probably be a great option. There is a very nice Family Practice doc in Northboro that someone else has recommended.  For homebirth midwives <a href="http://www.massmidwives.com" target="_blank">www.massmidwives.com</a> is a great place to get names of the midwives serving Massachusetts. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Best Wishes!</p>
