We had a consultation in
with Dr.
before our son was born to decide if we wanted him as our pediatrician. He was wonderful, unrushed, had a great bedside manner. We did however have reservations about being at such a larg practice. After our son's birth, Dr.
made a special stop to see our son for his first visit that night. We then met 2 new doctors each of the following mornings at the hospital b/c Dr. G wasn't on rotation. Then when we had to go to the office the next two days after our release for jaundice checks we still didn't get to see Dr. G. We have only seen him on "scheduled" visits. On both the 2 week and 2 month visits he was personable and VERY rushed. I hardly had any time to ask him any questions or talk to him about any concerns. At the 2 month visit he was walking out of the room before I even finished my questions (I only had about 5). In addition to these problems my son had been having issues with eye "crusties". He had been into see a different physician (again) 4 weeks prior to his 2 month check up. Instead of really paying attention to my son he just asked if we had anymore of the previous drops and then wrote us a new RX. So he essentially wasn't concerned that my son had to be on medicated eye drops off and on for 4 weeks. When my husband and I went in for our well visits our doctor noticed his eyes and said that we needed to get him off the drops. He ran an eye culture (without charging us for an office visit). The eye culture came back negative indicating blocked tear ducts. I had asked the pediatrician about blocked tear ducts and he said it wasn't likely to be the issue. We stopped the drops, kept his eyes clean and after his most recent growth spurt we haven't had any issues! We were very unhappy as parents and started considering transfering a smaller practice. We recently received our insurance itemized statement. They charged $550 for being in the office around 15 minutes and for 4 infant shots. On the itemized statement they charged $57 for "vaccine consultations". I am not sure what that meant but all we ever got was a 2 page pamplet on the vaccines and the doctor telling me vaccines doesn't cause autism and that they follow the AAP recomendations for vaccines. I had to ask the nurse about the side effects (like fever and fussiness) when she asked me to sign a form saying I had been informed about the side effects. I am very lucky and my insurance pays 100% for vaccines and well visits, but billing like this increases premiums for everyone. I now have plans to cancel his 4 month checkup and go with another physician.

When we moved here we had a consult apointment with this office and liked the Doctor we met with very much. We never saw him again. We saw a different doctor every time we went in for a sick visit. My son has Aspergers but I didn't feel I needed to explain that to every new doctor we saw. He ended up being held down to do a throat swab when it really could have been avoided if they thought about the fact that he has an aversion to any type of invasive procedure. I admit I should have been more vocal, but they should have read his chart. We switched to an office with only two doctors.
