Zero stars. Horrible doctor! Super outdated info and puts all newborns on Rx fluoride drops which even the bottle says 2 years and older! My dentist said no way & can poison system. Pro formula! Makes appts for you vs you picking times! Did not combine vaccines properly, so your child maybe get 6 shots when 3 would work! My new office said they didn't have any batch numbers on the vaccines so what if there was a recall?!? Total disgusted with their group appts and hearing people's business.

We started here and left after 1 appointment. Not a friendly office. Dr. Papa starts babies on solid foods at 1 month! The CDC doesnt recommend it until closer to 6 months due to gut and tongue reflex. Does GROUP appointments with 2 other families present in their kitchen lounge: where you go over how youre feeding & their vitals! Definitely not pro breast feeding: suggests giving formula even for great weight gains. Baby was 4 weeks early & he said gained too much weight but later said its ok.

This Dr sat down with my husband and me today and told us that we should have our 6 month old daughter forward facing in the car and that he's friends with officers and we won't get in trouble for it even though the law says babies are supposed to be rear facing until 2 years. He also told us a ton of other crazy stuff. I CANNOT get on board with a doctor who encourages you to break the law.

Searching for a ped when pregnant, I spoke to his nurse. I asked specifically if hesupported breastfeeding and she said yes. But he is not breastfeeding friendly. U will fail at nursing w This doc. He tried to get me to supplement for no reason from day one and handed out papers on how u need to raise ur kid, bottle feeding everyday even wheb nursing. Had stupid little mandatory new parent meetings where he went around in a circle asking if u are following his directions and giving bottles....
