No-vax Ped in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area Medicaid

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

My son is almost 22 months now and we have a baby due in October. We don't vaccinate, and because of that (and because he's been generally healthy) we haven't brought our son to the doctor since his 6 month apt. I didn't plan a pediatrician for him so after he was born and they asked me I just went with the one my mom uses for my brother. Problem is my mom is totally pro-vaccine ("joking" that she'll kidnap my son and take him to get them) and so is the doctor. He is very pushy about them. I'm having trouble finding a pediatrician in my area that would be supportive of our decision not to vaccinate and that takes Medicaid. Any ideas?

Thank you!

We've been taking our 13 month old to Dr. Turke. He's respectful of our choice to not vaccinate. Hr lets us know what she would be receiving if vaccinating and goes on from there. We don't dialog about the issue because he does believe they are safe. To me the most important part is that he is respectful. I was really nervous about finding a pediatrician I would feel comfortable with. I'm not sure about the insurance coverage.
