Looking for delayed vacc. doc in southwest Michigan

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm brand new to mothering.com so I hope this is a good place to post this!  I'm looking for a general practitioner of family practice in southwest Michigan (Kalamazoo/Battle Creek and north up to Hastings) that is supportive of selective & delayed vaccination.  A general appreciation for a "crunchy" lifestyle would definitely be appreciated- homeschooling, drinking raw milk, being on well water and not taking fluoride supplements, etc.

 

Any ideas or recommendations?  Is there a directory somewhere other than Dr. Sears website?

 

Thanks in advance!

Actually, the tribal area is the best place to look for local responses. smile.gif I'll move it for you!

I got in touch with everyone I know on that side of the state and no one is close enough to you to recommend a doctor.  But they did recommend getting in touch with the local LLL.  A lot of times if you get in touch with them, a mom can point you in a good direction.  Similarly, any attachment parenting or home school Yahoo group (or FB) could help you get in touch with a physician.

Dr. Kavanuagh is in Paw Paw, about 15 minutes west of Kalamazoo.  He is willing to skip some or all vaccines, and the office is generally laid back compared to most pediatricians.
