Many of you have requested to be informed of when I find a pediatrician that I can recommend for you. You have also asked if I could provide care for you, as adults. As a pediatrician, I like to 'stay in my lane' and only treat children, however. I also needed to find a pediatrician to care for my own children now that I don't have Nurse Practitioners in my own practice.
After over a year of searching, I have found her. Dr Delene Musielak is a lot like me. She focuses on lifestyle changes before jumping to medication. And, she works closely with you to help you make the most informed decisions you can. Her nonjudgmental, kind approach, is what drew me to realize that she was the right fit for my family and yours. Yes, I have signed my kids up to be in Dr Musielak's practice.
I know that most of you have asked for a 'doc like' me 'that takes insurance', but I don't believe there is such a thing. Any doctor who takes the time to educate parents and truly listen, cannot be in private practice and survive on what insurance pays them/us. So, to answer a common question, Dr D, as she likes to be called, does not take insurance. I'll let her share her pricing structure with you.
The even better news is that she also sees adults. She is board certified in Pediatrics AND Internal Medicine. That means she can take care of you and your children. She's actually board certified in Obesity Medicine, as well.
If you'd like to get started with her, you can contact Jodi at 314-949-5475 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Let me know if you have any questions. And thank you all for you past, present, and future trust and support.
