I'm looking for a pediatrician

My husband and I live in Dana Point, CA and are expecting in November.

I wanted to see if anyone could refer a good pediatrician to us.  If so, what do you like about your ped? 

In general, I would like to find a ped who is compassionate and patient.  Who has an open mind to my beliefs about things like vaccination schedules.  Who is a good knowledgable doctor who keeps current with the latest medical advancements.

Thanks!

Hi,

My doctor for the kids in is SJC...not too far from you.  He has been my ped since my oldest was 4mos old, now she is eleven.   He has been the sweetest, most patient, kind doctor.  The girls love him.  He does keep up with the lastest information, and is very knowledgeable.  He  has helped me with a child that was very sick the first few years of her life, and helped me with my youngest when she needed surgery.  He will refer you to the best doctors without hesitation.  We actually found all of our adult doctors through him too!  Wishing you the best and good luck finding a doctor.

Dr. Carruth
