I have a great ped for my daughter, but I have looked and looked for a good family doc for us and nothing.<br><br>
My husband went to one that did mostly worker's comp stuff and they were awful. He went around 5 times and the waits were almost over 2 hours, not friendly at all.<br>
I went to one that was all too happy to write me a script and refused to pay attention when I said that I might have an milk intolerance and I thought that something else might be allergies. He just wanted to drug me up.<br><br>
I have heard good things about Nellie Gross but they are honestly too expensive, we have a great health insurance plan and wouldnt mind going even out of network honestly.<br><br>
A homeopath isnt necessary just a good family doctor that runs tests, listens to you, and isnt trying to drug you up.<br>
We live in Spring Branch but wouldnt mind driving some. My husband has borderline high BP and cholesterol so we really do need someone monitoring that, or else I honestly wouldnt care.

Bumping this up 'cause I'd love to know of good family docs or general practitioners in the area! I haven't had my own doc in more than 2 years and will just go to urgent care if I really need something. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Would be nice to have someone that we could build a relationship with! Does such a person exist?

I've heard good things about the Baylor family practice near Kirby and Richmond.<br><br>
No personal experience though.<br><br>
good luck!<br><br>

I have a couple of names. But it will depend upon your insurance.<br><br>
As I said before, I can try to answer via PM if someone wants a recommendation from me.

Search the archives for Nellie Gross, she gets mixed reviews. I'm subbing b/c I'd love the right family doctor as well. Right now I just use my accupuncturist if something is kinda wrong.

I go to Dr. Dorothy Lamping. I just looked her up hoping to find an address, but I found a website instead <a href="http://www.dlamping.com/" target="_blank">www.dlamping.com</a>.<br><br>
I live in Spring Branch, and I just take Clay Rd out to Elderidge to get to her office.<br><br>
I've never been to her for anything major, but I like her well enough, and I don't consider her "crazy."<br><br>
Good Luck!<br>
