But doesn't actually recommend any vaccines?

I'm not sure what our MD does - he knows we don't vaccinate anymore and never says a word about vaxes at WCVs.  When I brought my DD's shot record to him just so he could have a copy on file, he opened it up, pointed to it, and said "Are we doing any of these?" and when I said no, he said "Good!"

 

So while I'm sure he gives vaccines for patients whose parents want them, he definitely doesn't push them or strong arm parents about the issue!

We have an MD who is opposed to vaccination in "most" cases, she says.  She is strongly opposed to vaccination given to very small babies, individuals with previous history of vaccine reactions, or babies/children with family history of auto-immune disease.

I chose the third option, but none of the choices were really representative of our situation. We see an ND, and she does recommend a sel/del schedule, but she is not entirely supportive of our decision not to vax. She doesn't pressure us too much, but makes it clear that she would like us to consider some vax...

We have an MD and he won't even allow pharma reps into his office! 

 

He combines the best of western med with alternative medicine, as well.  He has studied in Germany, India and China.

 

He doesn't carry any vaccines (will give an RX to those that wish them and they can go to the health dept).

 

He is not a pill-pusher and encourages lifestyle changes to treat conditions (high blood pressure, cholesterol, etc) before resorting to drugs.

 

He even makes house calls! 

 

We love him!!
