I agree that no amount of certificates on the wall substitute for good judgement and experience.
I like that, and will say I don’t care what letters are after ANY professionals have after their name.
That doesn’t mean didly squat.
With all due respect I DO HAVE that for them, but in all the years of schooling, and all the years of practice they may have if they do not have common sense nor listen to the parents nor treat each individual as a patient NOT a protocol.
And the big one admits they know it all.
Then that is NOT the doctor I would want to see.
I guess that why I dont really have a doc right now. Oops well im workin on it but Rick never returned my e-mail since before thanksgiving…. Lol…… “Hint” “ Hint”
I like this as well and it was needed to be said.
As far as respect goes, we should check credentials, references, and learn to ask questions of anyone treating our children. We would not think this disrespectful if we were hiring an employee of any sort. These are service providers who make a living treating our children. They are just people...not the Pope...and this is treatment...not a religion.
Ohh!!! I can go to town with this Post, but Rick in the House Lol…
No…. Just kidding (he is a great guy) Kenny V will vouch for him.
However in all honestly I will say that because he is in the house many parents may feel that they cant express themselves freely without getting some feedback when it comes to choosing a Doc
A Dan! Doc no less.
Now Buttar oops I wasn’t supposed to mention names he has his own track record and if you like, you can follow it, But for some reason its all “Top secret for us Gentiles so all I can do is get parental reports, and IMO that’s all you really need if you get enough of them.
Please do not ask me, no further comment….
I do not like to talk about people, but IMO when you choose a doc I think it is important that you are confident in them as well as have had a referral who is aquatinted with working with them.
I am not ashamed to say this because it is the best thing a parent can do before making a choice with a Doc.
Gotta say that is why other forums may be more helpful asking this type of question. Or you may have to take a question with an experienced parent off list to get a more honest response.
Sorry if anyone may feel that that is out of place. But it is reality and there is nothing wrong in doing so.
You have that right, we all do.
So with that said, I would ask have ya ever heard of doctor so in so?
Any one have experience with working with them with this or that interventions?
And if so can you please comment, perhaps send an e-mail off list.
Ok back to the original Q from Jen.
Jen I think you should have your question answered specifically and do not feel intimidated, if you need to post on other biobords then do so. Perhaps be more specific and ask again here.
After trying, (which I suggest you do) If you get no response than you can e-mail me personally at email@example.com
this week only. (rarely use this address) Ill share with you what I know of the Docs in your area.
I think I hafta find an old post that I wrote on choosing a doc its is quite humorous and maybe may bring a lighter side to the question with out bashing anyone.
Ill get back if I can find it.
