Unfortunately an excellent Childrens Clinic (Valley Childrens Clinic), in my opinion, is tarnished having this dr serving their clientele.
I saw Dr. Richter with my 6mo old son to see if he had an ear infection. In the time that I was in her office she had me in tears telling me how awful of a parent I was for breastfeeding my son, for that being his main source of nutrition. She told me he HAD to be eating 3 meals a day (Someone hasnt read the AAP recommendations). Dr. Richter followed that by telling me I should not co sleep with my son, it was doing him long term harm. It just went down hill fromthere.
I am not the only one that feels this way, the same people that referred me to VCC, told me they had had a similar experience with Dr. Richter. If I had gone in because my son wasnt eating, or because he wasnt sleeping well, then *maybe* these topics coming up would have been justified, but it had nothing to do with why I was there, and it was bad information for a dr to be giving.
I have let ONE of my children be seen by Dr. Richter, ONE time, and that was enough for a lifetime. There are too many other great drs in that clinic!
