Pediatrician Accepting Medicaid

I need to find a Pediatrician for my daughter that accepts medicaid. The dr she has been seeing all her life does not accept medicaid. Due to my unemployment situation that is all I have at this time. I've searched on line and cannot find a list of drs who accept new medicaid patients. I don't want to use the phone book. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

What can I do next?

See Dr Sudha Shah at ###-###-#### She may be on Devon and a bit away from you, but she is the most genuine, warm, caring doc I've had for my little girl. She answers all my q's never rushes people and has such a loyal patient population. She takes medicaid.

You could also go to the Infant Welfare Society on Fullerton in Logan Square. They provide physicals, immunizations, and even a dental clinic--all that accepts public aid. And they also have a sliding fee schedule for those not covered by public aid. Dr. Gibbs is the pediatrician my nieces see. I worked at the dental clinc for five years, and I can say that they provide excellent care. If your daughter needs a physical, she may also need a dental exam, and they can do that there. The number there is ###-###-####. Good luck.

Hey, I feel your pain. I'm in a very similar situation. I take my daughter to Anderson Medical Associates in Des Plaines. My daughter just loves her doctor, Dr. Rebecca Bergmann. Very nice woman. Tells it like it is, and has a sense of humor.
