We LOVE our pediatrician at Cambridge Hospital: Jeanette Callahan.  She is
loving, thoughtful, smart, straightforward, flexible, respectful of our
wishes, asks us good questions, has been supportive of a modified vaccinatin
schedule (though she does insist on all vaccinations being done)....

i recommend her very highly.
