Finding a Pediatrician...

Hey St. Louis friends out there I need your help. Since I only have 8 weeks left in my pregnancy it is time we find a Pediatrician (a very important part to having a baby, right?). Well, I would like your recommendations on this. I don't really have anywhere to go from here. If you could comment and let me know who you know or use and someone you highly recommend that would be great. My OBGYN is with Missouri Baptist Hospital, but I don't think it matters with the Pediatrician...does it???

Please help this new mom out! Thanks friends!

Dr. Sara Ayers at Suburban Pediatrics (Ballas Rd.) is great. She trusts that mom's instinct and goes out of her way to make sure you're satisfied. Both my boys love her. A lot of seminary students go there and they accept Medicaid. I love the new design by the way! Did you do that with your Mac?! AWESOME!

We got to Ellen Nicastro at St. Johns. Obviously, we don't know her too well, but so far she has been nothing but awesome.

I have also heard great things about Suburban Pediatrics. That is actually where MY OB takes her daughter.

We go to David Hartenbach at Esse Health (New Ballas/Olive). He is an acquired taste - very straight forward, but I like that. We have grown to love him - - my kids adore him!!!

Emily,
We go to Eureka Pediatrics, Dr. Green is a very mild-mannered, very sweet guy! The kids love him, and Elijah even says he wants to be like Dr. Green when he grows up but have 10 kids too! Whew! I am praying for his wife! :) Any way their number is 636 587-3000. He really is a nice guy!

Emily, While we were in STL, Eliza went to David Hartenbach as well, I really appreciate him. I've grown to really appreciate Eliza's new ped. down here in H'ville, but Hartenbach's office was so great! I definitely recommend him!

Emily, we also see Dr. Hartenbach. As Becky said, he is an acquired taste. I have gone up and down with him. Some visits i love him, other times i feel like he doesn't quite give me enough of his time to answer all my questions fully. I would suggest meeting him and seeing for yourself.I know tons of people that go to him.
