Does anyone know how I can locate a pediatrician short of going through the yellow pages and calling them all to find out if they will do the safer vaccine schedule vs the conventional vaccine schedule. I have heard that some docs refuse to see your baby if you don't vaccine them as the CDC says.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Agreat place to start is through your local La Leche League chapter; there's bound to be a couple of non-vaxers who could refer you. If don't have much luck finding a pedi, you coul also look for a Family Practioner, an Osteopath or a Naturopath; the downside is that they don't often have much experience handling babies and small children, but on th upside they are generally much more open-minded about alternative vaccination schedules.

What is a vaccine-friendly doctor?
Some parents choose not to vaccinate their kids. Others want to partially vaccinate. Some aren't sure what they want to do, and they want help figuring what will be best for their child. If you fit into any of these categories, you may have a hard time finding a doctor. I know where I live and work, in Orange County, California, we are one of the only practices that take such patients. Most doctors around here kick patients out of their practice for not vaccinating, or for asking too many questions. That's why I've created a database of a list of doctors who are friendly toward parents who want help with the vaccine decision or who want to delay or decline vaccines. The doctors listed here will have read, or be familiar with, my book and contacted me to have their practice listed here as a place such patients can come and feel welcome. All doctors here are either pediatricians or family practice physicians.

If you have a "vaccine-friendly" doctor, or know of one, who isn't listed here, please have them contact us at [email protected] to have their practice listed.
