My daughter is bulemic and receiving treatment in a day program in manhattan. I would like to switch pediatricians for her as our current one appears to be pretty clueless about the disorder. Does anyone have any suggestions of someone good in Brooklyn. My daughter is 15; she might feel more comfortable with a woman. Please advise.

Most pediatricians are clueless. I don't know any who are eating disorder savy.

Did your daughter have a doc at shneiders?

My daughter did have a Doctor at Schneiders, but now we are part of a different eating disorder program called, Renfew and so we need to find a different physician. They were not really able to recommend someone to me who either accepted my insurance or who was convenient to get to.

When I was at renfrew, I still saw my doctor at lij.

(They have a brooklyn branch... But the docs don't come in very often... )
If you need more info, just ask.

Which doctor did you see. Was it Doctor Fisher. Also did you see a therapist in Brooklyn that you would recommend. How by the way are you doing? Any other suggestions?

I don't feel comfortable writing all this info on the public board...
I'm scared my parents will read it... But I'll definitely send you a private message.
And for anyone else out there who needs any info at all, feel free to pm me...
