We've seen Dr Selin, Dr Loehr, and Lisa (the nurse practitioner) at Cayuga Family Medicine, and I didn't think they were pushy at all with vaxes. They just mention the child's age, which vaxes are recommended, and which diseases they protect against. If you deny them, that's fine, and they go onto the next part of the checkup. No forms to sign, and no "your child is going to DIE of the measles and KILL every child and old person he/she comes in contact with!"
From stories I've read on here and elsewhere about doctors, they seem very lenient on the issue. I think they mostly bring up the vaxes and give the parents the info from the CDC to cover their butts in case your child *did* get a vaccine preventable disease.
They're also very breastfeeding friendly (also fine with extended breastfeeding), non-circ friendly, pro-natural foods, and fine with alternative diets.
