Ratings for Dr. Mary M. Nave
Nice office if you want doctor led care for your child. Suggested natural remedies vs. chemical products. If you are wanting to be a part of your child's healthcare decisions this is not the doctor for you. This doctor is pro immunization (CDC viewpoints) and pro hospital care only & has questioned a parent's ability to provide healthcare for their child.
The office staff and the other doctors are great, but we will not be coming back because of Mary Nave. We had previously been getting a birth control prescription for our older teenager from this office. The office had us make an appointment as a "follow up" of the birth control prescription before we could get it re-filled. Dr. Nave flat out refused to re-fill the prescription, saying that prescribing it would be like "giving you a prescription for cigarettes", and then went on to say that birth control doesn't work and is the reason that there is such a high abortion rate in the country and that condoms and other forms of contraception rarely, if ever, work. When we asked if she had any other alternatives for us, her only suggestion was to "be chaste". Now, we have to wait weeks to be re-filled by another office. Doctors like Mary Nave are the reason teenagers get pregnant because she refuses to give them the contraceptives they need to have safe sex.
We love this office. We did not have a pediatrician choosn at the time our childs birth. They were the Dr. Lowers and Dr. Navahi were the on call Dr's and they were wonderful. This office has a great balance between old experienced and the new aged ideas and experience. We feel that the Dr's in this office think with common sense, which seem hard to find these days.
I had the worse experience with Dr. Nave. I would not recommend her to anyone. When I first met her I thought she was so nice but after my son developed his first medical problem I was quickly dismissed and even asked why I would switch insurance at such a time...my insurance is through my work I had no control over it. I have never been so hounded by an office for money and would never ever take my kids back.
Dr. Nave is AMAZING, hands down, the BEST Dr. I've had for my three kids! If you call her with a question about a sick kid in the middle of the night, she calls you back within minutes! She never rushes you, she treats you like a friend and is genuinely interested in REALLY taking care of your children. The other doctors in the office are wonderful too! I make appts with all of them! Best Doctor's office I've ever been to! The administration is wonderful and that's ALWAYS hard to come by. I switched from another Templeton office bcs of the staff who ran their desks. I LOVE this group of women doctors!!
Dr. Mary Nave is a fantastic pediatrician, and her nurse practitioner Margie is great as well. They share the office with Dr. Nahvi who is also a great pediatrician. Our kids love them and so do we. If our kids are sick, they can always work us in on the same day.
