post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I live in West Milford and work in Bergen COunty. I am looking for a pediatrician or practice that is very holistic, proBF, ant-vax. Anyone have recommendations?

Dr. Howard Schlacter in Essex Fells is super super. Very supportive of BFing and non-vaxxing.

All these things in one Doctor are hard to come by. There is a very pro-BF Doctor in Pompton Lakes, but she'll go on at you regarding vaccinations. There is a Doctor in Wyckoff who is easy on vaccinations, but not so hot on bfeeding and doesn't understand non-circumcision at all.

The whole child center in Oradell seems to be the best alternative if you don't mind driving all that way. I go to Wyckoff because I do selective vaccinate my daughter so it's not a big deal to me. (I live in Bloomingdale).

Dr. Bacha in Tenafly is a pediatric DO who is good with breastfeeding and no or delayed vax and is taking new patients.

I just saw you post while searching the web for a new doctor since mine released me because I will not vax.  I live in Warwick, NY...did you find a pediatrician and if so who?

We go to Whole Child Center as well. I love Dr. Rosen. Dr. Jenney is good too!

Does Dr. Rosen support no-vax? and is he taking new patients? I'm looking for new ped dr. as my dr does not agree with me. My baby got some vax but we don't want to give anymore after doing thorough research abt vax. please advise. we're from somerset county but would be willing to drive for no-vax dr. Thanks!

From what I understand The Whole Child Center only accepts new patients only if they are newborns.  I am having a baby next month and that is what I have been told.

We like and use Sparta Pediatrics in Sparta, NJ. They are pro-BF, not confused by our non-circ son, and let us select vax. They are a husband/wife team: Dr Jacobson and Dr McHugh. Not sure how they feel about no-vax. Check them out: http://www.spartapediatrics.com

I live and work in Sussex County and travel to TouchPoint pediatrics in Chatham. I have had no issues with their support of breastfeeding (my older son was breastfed until he was nearly 4). They say they are 'pro-vax' but we selectively vax and have never had an issue or concerns.

Hi, im in Warwick too (moved from MA in July) and was wondering if you ever found a pediatricianclose by?  Thank you!

We LOVE Dr. Schlacter!! You're right OLIEN!.. He is awesome?! I've been to 4 other pediatricians prior to finding him. I am happy and relieved to say that my pediatrician search is over! My drive there is about 30-35 minutes, but I'm willing to drive the distance. It's a pretty ride too and for the few times we go, it's completely worth it. smile.gif
