Seeking Info re Bayside Medical and Sutter Pediatricians
We're expecting our first kiddo in May, and are trying to narrow down and pick a pediatrician. My OBGYN is through UCSF and I've had a mixed experience; we're sticking with UCSF for delivery, but my husband and I are not particularly interested in the UCSF system/UCSF pediatricians. I'm wondering if folks have thoughts/recommendations for either Bayside Medical Group or Sutter Health?
Of course, we'd like someone with a good rapport with kids, knowledgeable, etc. We certainly don't want unnecessary medication/treatment and are on-board with caring for both physical and emotional health, but finding a staunch holistic provider is not an absolute for us; we definitely want to get all recommended immunizations. Based on my experience with UCSF, one of my concerns is avoiding bureaucracy/miscommunication/poor communication/lack of communication from the doctor or staff. We're also hoping to build a connection with the pediatrician (i.e. see that provider consistently) and not get bounced around a variety of providers - perhaps that is a pipe dream given how medical care functions today.
Anyway, thoughts/recommendations/reactions welcome!
