Re: Pediatrican or Family Doctor open to Alt Healing
Dr. Shannon McCune is a wonderful family doctor on Telegraph Ave. in south Berkeley. She is very open to alternative medicine treatment and refers patients often. She is a very open and sympathetic person. I think you would like her. She also has very good reviews on yelp.com that you might want to look at. She can be reached at (510) 204-8110. I understand the frustration of finding such doctors. I am an ''alternative health practitioner'' and have the same issue with finding traditional doctors that are open minded. Best of luck to you!

Re: Good female prim. care doc in Alta Bates or Hill?
Wow, I could've written the same query a year ago, except I'm ''an educated, inquisitive, overweight, caucasian woman who is trying to lose weight and get control of her health.'' I really like Dr. Amal A. Sawires (2850 Telegraph Ave, cor. Oregon, #120 Berkeley, 94705 (510) 204-8150). Staff's busy, but professional; she gives unhurried, undivided attention, answered all my questions thoughtfully/thoroughly; I like her. --still too fat; but fitter (& hopefully phatter)
My long-time doctor, Roger Iliff, is no longer seeing patients in the ABMA Berkeley office. Does anyone have any experience with the other doctors in this office: Dr. Sawires, Dr. Wang, Dr. Michele Shute, or Dr. Shannon McCune? Thanks. Leslie
Re: Primary Doctor Recommendations
I signed up with Dr. Amal Sawires, and have liked her very much so far: she was attentive, didn't rush, actually took the time to listen to my responses to her questions, and was insightful with her answers to my questions - and was not dismissive of the ?'s I did ask. Look at the Dr. Finder @ the Alta Bates site for more info; here's her basic contact stuff: Amal A. Sawires, M.D. 2850 Telegraph Ave. @ Oregon, Suite 120, Berkeley, 94705 (510) 204-8150. Good Luck --Happy Sawires patient
Re: HealthNet primary care doc you love?
I love Nicola Hanchock, M.D. at 2850 Telegraph, Ste. 120, in Berkeley. 510-204-8150. She's absolutely wonderful, and has the added advantage of being an Internist. She'd probably be my first choice if she has openings, is a lovely, helpful and terrific primary care doctor. Judy
Re: Primary Care for my (stubborn) husband
My husband (stubborn!) and I (not very med-oriented!) are also in HealthNet/Alta Bates. He goes (as little as possible; the lure for a physiclal is it is a good excuse to miss work) to Dr. Tidyman and I see (fear of death/why not get your physical?) to Dr. Whitgob. Aside from the inherent humor in their names, both are down-to-earth, no nonsense types who get the job done. What stubborn doctor/phobe could ask for more? Doctor phobe plus
I am seeking a new primary care physician, can anyone recommend or comment on any of these doctors in the Alta Bates Medical Associates group in Berkeley: Whitgob, Iliff, Teng, Bakal and Wu. I have checked the website, but a different set of docs seems to be listed under this practice.
