    my own childhood pediatrician found out my baby had bronchitis...first signs of it....his own current pediatrician said no he doesn't have that he denied it he took away the prescription away from me so I won't get the medication I was furious I told her I been coming here almost every day now and no one will tell me what's wrong with my baby n if he ends up in the hospital with. Pneumonia im suing you for not diagnosing it and for taking away the prescription medications that could of have prevented it. She then had no choice to give it back....I told her that I don't come here for the fun of it I come because my child isn't feeling well I don't come here to waste my time or ur time.....some doctors are in it for the wrong reasons I'm changing pediatrician now will start searching as soon as my baby gets better

            With a visibly sick child, no I haven't had that happen.

            Around 5-7 months of age, Mason started having episodes where he would vomit A LOT. He showed no other signs of being sick and it would happen about once a month. For YEARS I asked doctors about it and kept being told it was "normal" but I knew it wasn't - nobody else that I ever talked to had a child that did this, and I talk to A LOT of Moms. As he got older, it would happen that he'd wake up around midnight or 1am, and start puking every hour for the rest of the night and into the morning. Then suddenly, he'd say he was hungry and would eat enough for an army (Like no joke he ate 24 chicken nuggets once) and be completely back to his normal self. I kept going back to different pediatricians and everyone told me it was just kid weirdness since it wasn't regular. Finally I got a doctor that listened to us and sent us to a gastro specialist who told us that it's not normal, that it could be a very serious problem with his small intestine that's fixable with surgery, or it could be cyclical vomiting which we just have to wait for him to grow out of. We are doing all kinds of tests with him right now to try to determine what's going on with my sweet boy.

            All this to say... If you think something might be going on with your child, advocate for them. Push for them. Don't give up no matter how many people tell you it's nothing.

              That's crazy. My daughter had a virus when she was about 11 months(which we didn't know at the time). She had fevers that would rise up to 104 and broke out in a rash. We had to rush her to the hospital because our pediatrician turned us away over a $300 bill that was owed from when she was born and they seen her in the hospital. Her insurance was dropped for some reason a few months before she was born and it took me 9 months to get it back. I payed for all of her shots and doctors visits in that time along with my oldest daughters as well since her insurance was also dropped. I was making small payments on the bill each time we went in there. I unfortunately had gotten laid off so I did not have any extra money to put towards it. The secretary told us the doctor said if we didn't pay off the $300 right then and there that he would no longer be seeing our kids. Needless to say we found them a new doctor and they turned me into collections over that $300 because I refused to give that money to a doctor that would turn an obviously sick infant away.
