Please keep All Better Pediatrics blue and include lactation services in your Memphis network.

Breastfeeding assistance is scarce in Memphis and West Tennessee. All Better Pediatrics is a small, extremely devoted and compassionate pediatrics clinic; they also happen to have the only two pediatricians in several hundred miles who are also International Board Certified Lactation Consultants.  Terminating All Better means 600+ families must find a new pediatrician and that there will no longer be any MD/IBCLC services in Memphis.

The Commercial Appeal reported that All Better Peds tweeted in support of a Tennessee Medical Association initiative leading BlueCross to terminate All Better's network contract.  Blue Cross said the tweets were "...critical of BlueCross’ network provider requirements ... [and] that this attitude would negatively impact the service experience of our members.” 

But truly, nothing could more negatively impact patient care than forcing us (the affected families and breastfeeding mothers) to leave the doctors we and our children know and trust.

As All Better Parents and interested stakeholders, we simply want to continue receiving the excellent care we always get at All Better Pediatrics.
