Seeking Recommendations: Vancouver Pediatrician who takes [WA] state insurance
We all want a great healthcare provider for our littles, regardless of the kind of insurance we might have. An urbanMama recently emailed, seeking your suggestions:
We are due in May and are looking for a pediatrician; my WONDERFUL obstetrician, Robin Barrett, unfortunately declined my request that she go into pediatrics :) Due to being laid off in Feb. at 7 months pregnant and losing my insurance coverage (thanks, huge Fortune 500 company-hope you saved a lot of money there, nice move), I'm going to have to enroll in Washington's state insurance for myself and my son when he's born. Are there any Vancouver mamas (downtown, Esther Short, Hough areas) who have a great pediatrician who takes state insurance? Having worked in healthcare before, I'm well aware that many clinics treat the state-insured patients a bit less thoroughly. I'd obviously like to find a doctor who won't treat a laid-off mama like a "welfare queen".
