Hi mamas - We're moving to Clearwater mid-June and my son needs to continue his ped ophtho visits. Does anyone have any recommendations?<br><br>
We would also love rec's for a pediatrician, natural food stores and a dentist in the area. Thanks so much!

You're moving by me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">. Natures Food patch is where we go, pretty much that's the only actual hfs except little vitamin shops etc..<br><br>
Dr. Fady is a great dentist.<br><br>
I hate my daughters ped, but I do know an awesome gi and pulm doc<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:<br><br>
Dr. Fitzgerald is a great family doctor!!!!!! I can give you lots and lots of stories about him, he's not in it for the money, and you can't say that about many docs.<br><br><br>
Pretty much all the speciality docs work out of all children's hosp is St.Pete, they have a website where you can browse through their docs. <a href="http://www.allkids.org" target="_blank">www.allkids.org</a>

I don't have any specific recommendations. Dd went to a ped opthamologist yesterday and said that anyone in the AAPOS would be good. He said there's a website to search for doctors. We currently live in the DC area, but are moving to FL this summer.<br><br>
Good luck!

Thanks for the replies, mamas! And, Deborah - can you pass to me the link for the website to search for docs? Thanks, again!

We just moved and ds needs a battery of docs. His therapists & docs in West Palm all said to check the <a href="http://www.allkids.org" target="_blank">All Children's Hospital website</a>. I found his ped through there and she's GREAT! Now I'm looking for his cardiologist, SLP and plastic surgeon through them. You can narrow it down by specialty.

Thanks, ladies! Will be using those search pages. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Now here's hoping they're under my insurance! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I wouldn't recommend ACH. I've heard that Morton Plant is the best hospital. I am in St. Pete, but Morton Plant is in Clearwater. We just found Danuta Jackson-Curtis through this board. She is up near you and board certified in pediatric emergency medicine. She is very AP-friendly as well. Only drawback is a long wait; but that's because she gives everyone as much time as they need. I am going to try to schedule for her first available appt and see if that helps. Good luck & welcome!
