When I first moved to Ocala from the big city, the most difficult part was finding a new pediatrician for my then 6 month old son. I was really attached to his pediatrician at home.
We have made the decision to use an alternative vaccination schedule for our son, due to my serious concern of anyone administering 6-7 vaccinations in a baby on one day. Our pediatrician in Atlanta recommended the Dr. Sears Vaccination schedule.
So, I knew I was going to need a Pediatrician who was understanding of my decision for my son’s medical treatment.
Who would have known this community would be so unwilling to work with parents. After days of calling pediatrician after pediatrician, I finally found Dr. Eunus. Although he had never heard of the Dr. Sears Vaccination schedule, he was open to meeting me and working with me.
Not only is he an open-minded Pediatrician, not only does he respect parents involvement with their children, not only does he give him medical opinion and why he agrees or disagrees with your decision (but never condescends or dictates), not only does he not rush to antibiotics and chemicals as the first course or option of treatment…
But, he is fabulous to new patients! That, I find is so rare in a Doctor. I made an appointment for my son when I first moved down, and called back a day later needing to move that appointment date because I would be started a new job sooner than expected. His staff was wonderful and fit me in.
And to this day, they are always willing to fit you in, with a smile on their face.
They have been fabulous! As a first time, severely neurotic mother, I have had 2-3xs the “recommended” visits! My son has been in for a cough, runny nose, rash, you name it! And always, they work me in with a smile!
Dr. Eunus takes his time with each patient. Sure, sometimes you have to wait, but that’s because he doesn’t see his practice as a procession of faceless and nameless clients.
I highly recommend Dr. Eunus for your child. He has just opened another office off of Hwy 200, down off of Airport Road. It’s beautiful!
