My older child has seen Dr. Gracey several times and we never had any issues, which is why I chose her as my newborn's PCP. However, this experience was much different than any of my other experiences with her or any of the other providers within the practice. I asked her a question about vaccines and if it was possible to spread them out. Instead of explaining why the practice does not do it, she simply said no we don't do that here and asked why I would want to do that and made me feel like she was shaming me for even asking in the first place. She didn't offer any explanation for the initial question nor any of my follow-up questions. Then she proceeded to shame me about co-sleeping instead of having a conversation with me about it or even bothering to ask if I had done any research on it or if I was well-informed on the risks. I did not feel like she listened to any of my concerns, nor did I feel that she provided any helpful information. She did succeed in mom-shaming me and making me look into other pediatricians. I understand there are concerns and risks doctors have when it comes to certain ways of parenting, but I also know that there are much better ways of providing that information. She had absolutely no bedside manner. I am extremely disappointed in the way she handled the situation and my questions. I'm even more disappointed because I've had such great experiences with her prior to this, but this experience was just awful.
