My kids have been to a few pediatricians - and these were by far the best!! They have several doctors to choose from, all friendly, great with kids, patient, and very professional. They (some more than others) are knowledgeable about "alternative" cures and even offer (for purchase) a few homeopathic remedies there - but are up on all conventional medicines as well. My kids have had ear aches as well as colds, and the flu, all successfully treated with natural remedies. They respect parents' choices to do all vaccines according to the recommended schedule or to put them off until children are a little older, or to not vaccinate. They will educate parents and make sure they know all the facts, but ultimately respect the parents' choices. I have really appreciated that.
