With my first child I originally was very impressed with Dr. Lucherini. He agreed to meet with us before the baby was born, no charge, and we immediately chose him as our pediatrician. In the hospital he was very laid back and came in only a few hours after I had the baby, even though it was about 10:00 p.m. on a Friday. After than things went downhill. He convinced us to give him formula only which dried up my milk supply even though I was pumping. I didn't think much of this until I had my 2nd child and had a similar weight gain issue, but was just told to see a lactation consultant and nurse more often. A couple of times I called in and NEVER received a phone call back. I was told that emergencies come first, which I completely understand. But after 3 days you'd think they'd at least call back...especially since I didn't know if my son's problem was serious or not. I had to call 3 times during the 7 business days to get a response. The last straw was when I called and they refused to answer my questions saying I needed to make an appointment. This time it was just basic first-time nervous mom questions. When they made me make an appointment to have them answered I realized that they didn't want to answer over the phone since they wouldn't get paid. We switched doctors immediately and thenI got a notice from them saying they wouldn't want to treat my son. I thought it was funny that they waited until we switched doctors and picked up my son's records, then they told me it was their decision to let us go.

PROS: There are none!
CONS:
