We have yet to find a good ped, but I do delayed vaxing, so they haven't thrown us out of a practice yet. My DD just turned 5 and I want to get the MMR, maybe split up so I want to find a new ped.
This is what I copied and pasted from previous threads:
Dr. Michael Sheade in Streamwood/Elgin meets that criteria - he's excellent. He's also supportive of selective/delayed/no vaxing. www.aipdocs.com
vailable at that age, I said I wanted only measles, didn't want the others, he said OK. A friend of mine sees him as well, and he all but said to her (without actually coming right out and saying it) that he doesn't recommend the varicella vax. They keep the separate MMR components in stock and don't blink an eye if you ask for them.
With DS2, he said that we'd start vaxing at 2 months, I said that I wanted to follow a selective/delayed schedule, he said whatever I want to do is fine, just bring in the schedule we want to do so they have a copy for his chart. Obviously I don't do no vax, so I'm not sure what his reaction is to that, but I can't imagine he'd have a problem with it, he's so easygoing about everything else.
As far as breastfeeding goes, DS2 was having weight gain issues and he didn't even mention supplementing, just said to keep on nursing and come in for weekly weight checks. Other friends that have used him have said that he's very supportive of BFing as well. And he's never tried to retract either of my kids or tell me to retract for cleaning, or anything like that.
With everything I've ever had questions/concerns about, he's taken a 'you're the mom, you know best' approach rather than an 'I'm the doctor, I know best' approach, and I love that about him.
Dr. Karen Federici in Genoa is wonderful and very supportive of alternative vax choices. She sometimes posts on MDC.http://www.familyfirstdocs.com/physiciansandstaff.php
We like Homefirst very much--they're very supportive of delayed/no vax. They are homebirth doctors and are very supportive of nursing for as long as you can, tandem or otherwise.
Dr. Paul Schattauer is our favorite, Dr. Zumhagen is also good.
Don't know how close it is, but there is a Dr. Jennifer Schening in Elgin. I think she is okay with everything you describe. Don't know her contact info, though.
