Therefore doctors do not know nor do doctors care about me.


And quite frankly, I would like them to keep their gloved hands off my clean body. I have survived this far without them, and do not need nor want anything to do with them.

Been there already with the pediatrician, and me? Haven't had a "PCP" in over...10 years now?  Just the ND, who doesn't accept insurance to avoid all the bs, but I love her to death and don't mind paying out of pocket for her advice - DH still needs a bit of convincing that just because we have insurance doesn't mean we need to see these crazy MD's to make use of it!  The less docs I see, the healthier I am, funny how that works.

The stats are nationwide 1% of kids have not been vaccinated 'on schedule" but only .3% have been completely unvaccinated.  I hope that answers your question, OP.  I have two .3%-ers myself.  My pediatrician is respectful and I personally have never met a IRL person who was not respectful of my choice.  I have "met" MANY online people who were antagonistic to a fault, but never IRL.  I don't hide their vax status but I don't tell people unless they ask or it comes up.  Like at ballet class some of the moms were talking about how their kids hate their doctors.  I said my kid loves her pediatrician and maybe they might want to change practices?  They asked "but what does she think after she gets a shot?"  I just replied "We don't do shots."  They said "Oh...That explains why she loves her doc."  And that was that.  It might just be my area though, as I see a rising anti-non-vaxxer sentiment all over the internet that grows each day.
