DOCTORS WHO ARE FRIENDLY TO ANTI-VACCINE PARENTS -- BY STATE




NEW UPDATED 2015 LIST - Old List is Included Below
Thanks to lioralourie at the BabyCenter Community
NEW List of Vaccine Friendly Doctors State By State A-M
http://community.babycenter.com/post/a30859003/new_list_of_vaccine_friendly_doctors_state_by_state_a-m



Here is a streamlined resource for ALL the Vax friendly doctors we have so far.

First, 1) PLEASE CONSULT THESE SIX ONLINE LISTS AT THE LINKS. MY BELOW LIST IS JUST A SUPPLEMENT TO ALREADY PUBLISHED INFO ON THE WEB. CHECK THE FOLLOWING FOUR LISTS FIRST, THEN CONSULT THE BELOW LISTS (there may be some overlap but not much) ALSO you can google search for VAX Friendly Doctor plus your city name.

and 2) If you don't find a Dr. in your area that your insurance covers, etc. and are forced to choose somebody else, the general rule IME is that a regular family doctor MD, Chiropractors (and of course N.D. Naturopaths and Homeopaths) are all a better bet than a "Pediatrician". Dr's who see adults are used to their patients most of whom are without "proper" boosters, and they're not all falling over dead from pertussis or whatever, KWIM? If your child has no special diagnosis, no special pediatric issues to be followed closely, then a general developmental checkup by any licenced practitioner is enough. Or you can avoid Dr's entirely and learn yourself to check hips, chart height and weight, etc. No need for all these Dr. Visits - they are training sessions to get you used to vaccinating and running to the Dr. for colds, etc, that is all.

5) http://novaxdoctors.webs.com/doctorlist.htm

6) http://www.mothering.com/ search for delay vaccine doctor and your city name!

So, again, FIRST, check ALL the ABOVE online lists.

in addition, below, I have organized all ADDITIONAL poster comments from the previous sticky as additional info. I will continue to update this as new information is posted in the comments section.

disclaimer: I cannot say if all the info is current or accurate. All medical decisions are patients & parents' to make in conjunction with their physicians. I found the mama comments useful so I kept them in. I did not include one or two docs who seemed unfriendly. OK here it is: Great Job, mamas!



ALABAMA
1) Bay Minette: Dr. Jessica Hagemeier at North Baldwin Pediatrics. She didn't push the vaccinations on us once she knew we didn't vaccinate. She was very loving and considerate of our views.

2) Alex City: Dr. B. Sellers: "friendly, and accepting of any delayed-vax/non-vax decisions. "

3) Madison: "unfortunately, midwives cannot legally practice in our state. Naturopaths are hard to find also. However I looked online, and looks like there is a Linda Jarvis, MD who is a Naturopathic Dr in Madison. Try her and see if she might work"
ARIZONA

We saw Dr. Kelly England in Mesa, AZ today with Banner Health because she was on the Dr. Sears list but she was horrible!

Her office staff was barely professional, 40 minute wait in the lobby, one hour before she actually showed herself. She was condescending, sarcastic, and had a controlling demeanor. When I questioned "why" she needed to do something my son was uncomfortable with she took it as a threat and said "it's my job!" I insisted she not do it (out of respect for my son - it's his body) so she said I needed to find another doctor. She made no attempt to provide us any information or be reassuring. She also implied (through pointed, sarcastic questions) that my other son was behind in speaking (simply because he didn't want to speak to her because she was scary.)I immediately canceled my other kids' appointments.

She's super friendly and isn't rushed. Answers all your questions. Also pretty conservative with treatment. No rush to antibiotics or any meds. Very natural or wait and see approach but she won't hesitate to prescribe or send to a specialist if she really feels the need to.

She has been our doctor for the last 2 1/2 years because she was ok with me not vaccinating and she has a flat office visit fee of $50.
