Seeking Pediatrician Recommendations (Oakland)
Hi - we are expecting our first child in January.
We are hoping to find a pediatrician/pediatric group in the Glenview/Lakeshore/Piedmont/Pill Hill area who is an MD, but open-minded to alternative medicine, as well as less aggressive vaccination schedules.
We have a PPO, so rec's for Kaiser docs wouldn't be helpful to us. ;)
Thanks in advance!

Did you check BPN's list of pediatricians and pediatric practices in Oakland? https://www.berkeleyparentsnetwork.org/advice/oakland-pediatricians Lots o' pediatrician reviews there.
We interviewed Dr. Maidenberg of Sage Pediatrics (http://www.sagepediatrics.com/) and really liked a lot about her practice but it was a little outside our means so went a more traditional path with Alameda Pediatrics (https://stanfordhealthcare.org/medical-clinics/alameda-pediatric-associa...) and love them.
The docs at East Bay Pediatrics are wonderful. Also wonderful? Vaccines!! Including the 2 month DTaP shot that helped my son survive "P" of DTaP (pertussis) when he was 3 months old. A "less aggressive" vaccination schedule would have left him completely vulnerable. Just something to think about as you make your vaccination decisions.
