She listens to my concerns and takes appropriate measures in caring for my child. She does not pressure me to get the flu shot or optional vaccines. She respects my choice. I left my last pediatrician bc they consistently hounded me regarding the flu shot and other vaccines. I do get all the vaccines recommended for attending school, and am not an anti-vaccine person. I appreciate the respect with which I'm treated.
