See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
So I am searching for a new doctor for DD because we are moving. Well, that I really don't like the one that we have. While researching local docs I came across a practice that I was interested in calling. However, when reading the doc bios, I saw that one of them is the doctor for the local school district. That was a huge red flag for me. DD is just about 9 months old and I do not plan to eventually send her to school in that district. I also know that doctors are required by law to maintain confidentiality. Yet, I am very hesitant. I will be using a religious exemption when she starts school because my state does not offer a philosophical option. I guess my question is whether I should even call the office. My fear is that an open and honest discussion with these doctors would somehow hurt me down the line when I try to enroll her in school. It's also likely that this practice would not be very friendly to non-vax families since one of them works for the establishment. I'm tired to searching for a doctor and just want to find one I like and stick with them.
Oh, and while I'm asking you ladies for advice - what types of questions should I ask the nurse when I call doctor's offices for info. I don't think my insurance will let me try them all out. I'm checking out peds and family practices.
