I already posted this on Facebook, but if you know me in real life (and, therefore, know where we live) and we aren’t friends on Facebook for some reason, I have a question:
We had to push awfully hard with our current pediatrician to get referrals to First Steps and a developmental specialist for Colin, and then to an infectious disease doc for Noah. We are hoping to find someone who might be a little more responsive. We’re not looking for someone who’s going to order tests and procedures out the wazoo or anything, but our kids really needed these referrals and we feel like their doctor was too lax about it (In all three cases he said, “Oh, I think we can wait a while and see what happens.”).
Ideally, we would also like to find a pediatrician of color (African-American, Asian, Hispanic, whatever) that would be convenient to our new house (north, east, or one of the suburbs to the north would be OK). Any suggestions?
