First time Mom-to-be needs Pediatrician recs...

Hi Everyone!

I'm a former Knottie who has lurked the nestie boards a bit, but just haven't introduced myself. But now, here I am, finding myself really needing your assistance. My husband and I got pregnant on our very first try -- our wedding night! So, I've barely had any time to indulge in a married bio or smoothly transition into an official Nestie. Anyway, time flew by, and I'm due in just a few weeks but I STILL have not yet found a pediatrician. And I have NO idea where to go for honest recommendations. I'm the first in my group of friends to have a baby, so we are all pretty clueless about this. I live in the Sherman Oaks area nd would love to find a Dr. relatively close by. Can any of you point med in the right direction? I've tried theBump...but that board is DEAD.

 Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

    Congrats on the pregnancy!  I wish you a happy & healthy term!!!

  • Duh - sorry, I just read that you're due soon.  Hope you're feeling well!  Where are you delivering the baby?
  • Thanks! I'm delivering at West Hills Hospital. The staff there has been great so far. My OB gave me pediatrician recs in West Hills, but wise moms have told me to get a pediatrician that's closer to home as I'll probably be going there a LOT at first.

  • Yes, I agree, you will be making regular trips to the pedi for well-baby check-ups.  Hope to "see" you on this board more often.  There are lots of great ladies, many are moms.  Best wishes to you.  Keep us posted!  :-)

    Once in a while we will see another Dr. from the group - and they are all great, but Bromberg is wonderful!
    I go to the Agoura office, but they have an office in West Hills also.

    I delivered at West Hills in Aug - Great hospital - the nurses there are amazing!

  • We absolutely LOVE our pediatrician.   Dr. Jeremy Shapiro at www.boulevardpediatrics.com  He is with two other amazing doctors too.  I just am not certain that they are taking any new patients since they are so good so you would have to check.  They are in Encino on Ventura Blvd.  Info is all on the website.
  • Thanks so much everyone!! I will look into these ASAP.  :)
