Anyone have any knowledge or experience with this practice? My doctor recommended it and I am looking for opinions.
Jennifer Caplan is who I think we are going with. I liked both practices, but think I am going to go with them b/c there are more women and I am having a girl, likely silly, but... Do you ever have any problems getting in with her? Does she return calls promptly? Have you had any late night emergencies, were you happy with the response?
She rocks...seriously, I can't say enough good things about her. She has a great demeanor - relaxed and very uplifting - and she always takes a lot of time to listen to your questions and concerns. My son has lots of doctors due to some medical issues and I've learned that it's very hard to find pediatric doctors that don't talk down to you. I also feel like she doesn't give me parenting advice unless I ask, which I actually like a lot because many pediatricians have their strong opinions on self-soothing, eating, etc. and can be very pushy with them.
To your specific questions - no issues getting in, the nurse usually returns calls first but honestly has each time been able to help me and responds quickly (even when my DS was 5 months old and rolled onto the hardwood floor and I was in a MAJOR panic) and I haven't had any late night emergencies so I can't answer that one.
Most of my Mommy friends here in Scottsdale go there too and we all seem to see different doctors. But everyone is happy so that's a good sign about the practice.
Are you delivering at Shea? It's a great hospital - hope everything goes really smoothly for you.
