Hi,<br><br>
Just wanted to let you know of my lovely Holistic Pediatrician in NJ.<br><br>
Dr. Wendy Huang<br>
723 North Beers St., Suite 2E<br>
Holmdel, NJ 07733<br>
732-264-3344<br><br><b>Also</b><br><br>
9 Professional Circle<br>
Suite 212<br>
Colts Neck, NJ 07722<br>
732-780-1155<br><br>
The Holmdel office is for Traditional Pediatrics and the Colts Neck office is the Holistic Center. <a href="http://www.holisticmdwendy.com/" target="_blank">Here is a link.</a> She can see the whole family at the Holistic Center. She has been a great doctor for me during this pregnancy while dealing with depression. Also, I love her for my son's care. Compassionate, breastfeeding friendly, signed up as a foreskin-friendly doctor with NOCIRC, understands parent-based vaccine decisions, knows not to retract a child's foreskin. Smart, kind, and keeps up with the times.<br><br>
Please call her to interview her to make sure she fits in with your own personal philosophy if you are interested in considering her as your children's pedi. That is what I did and I am so pleased.

Hi there-<br><br>
Sorry to disagree, but we did not have such a great experience with Dr. Huang. She ordered a bunch of tests for my DS that I felt were unnecessary, and she did say we'd have to talk about vaccines the next time we came in (in a rather foreboding way...). We did not go back to her.<br><br>
I was originally attracted to her because of the alternative office and acupuncture services, but was distressed at the number of posters etc. from big pharma that plastered her office.<br><br>
Ivan's mom, I'm happy you had a good experience with Dr. Huang, but I did want to post another opinion as I've heard both positive and negative reviews from other local mamas, too.<br><br>

We go there too and have never had a problem. My daughter was born in 5/05 and we've been going since then. We signed a waiver in the beginning -signing off on the shots we weren't planning on getting. Asked her opinion about the shots when we first started going and she really only talked about whooping cough and how it could be a very long time before healing. Did that, and have never really heard much after. Only time she brought it up was when her older shots came up since we hadn't signed for them earlier. We breastfed until my dd was 2.5 and she never had a problem with that either. Only negative response I got was about co-sleeping and she just stated her opinion.<br>
BUT, it's strange - someone else in my holistic mom's group had the same feeling about her as Kristen above. It's so strange, we didn't get that reaction at all. I don't know if she reacts differently now to new patients since she opened her own holistic practice. I did notice a sign that said they'd only treat traditionally. If you want holistic medicine you need to go to her Colts Neck office???<br><br>
Not sure what's going on, but we'll keep going since she's in our network. Wish we could just go to her holistic office but we don't have out-of-network benefits.<br><br>

Dear Patients and parents,<br><br>
First I want to thank all these kind words said about me and apologize for the not so great experience. I want to use this opportunity to clarify some of the confusion about my practices.<br><br>
I have been practicing as a pediatrician for the past 23 years at my Holmdel office and started to offer holistic alternative more than 10 years ago. As my holistic patients increased, it became clear that holistic patients need more time and a holistic environment which my pediatric practice can not provide either.<br><br>
I opened my Colts Neck office last year dedicated to holistic pediatrics and medical acupuncture for all ages. My holistic patients stayed at the Holmdel office for physical and traditional care; they went to Colts Neck office for health concerns. Finally I can spend the time holistic patients need in a harmonious environment. Majority of my patients are very happy there and it's the most fulfilling experience for me as a physician. Please visit <a href="http://www.holisticmdwendy.com" target="_blank">www.holisticmdwendy.com</a> for more info.<br><br>
I really want to thank all my patients who walked with me searching holistic alternative for the health of their children. It has been a pleasure serving all of you.<br><br>

Dr. Huang gives you a claim form at the Colts Neck office for you to submit to insurance. I have had no problems with getting reimbursed. However, they do send the check to Dr. Huang and she then must sign it over to you. We have Cigna.

I also do not like the signs for flu vaccine and the information pamphlets stands. But, Dr. Huang is not the only doctor that shares that office, there are 3 of them and Dr. Huang is the only holistic pedi. there. I think patients would love the setting in her Colts Neck office.....Alternative Medicine magazines, lovely artwork and photographs, serene music playing.<br><br>
In regards to vaccines, I find her totally understanding about refusing or delaying. She is pro-breastfeeding and NOCIRC friendly.<br><br>
Hope more parents will look at her website and interview her to make sure she fits for your family. She is the best fit for mine.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">
