I just moved to Georgia, and now I am stuck with having to find a new pediatrician for my 4 month old baby. How have you gone about looking for a doctor that was alright with either completely not vaccinating, or being selective, and delaying vaccines? My last doctor was somewhat willing to work with me on the vaccine issue, but I hate the thought of having to deal with any possible confrontation from the doctor, where they make it sound like I am a bad parent for my stance on vaccines.

where did you move? 

try posting in the find your tribe board if you haven't already.  we're in GA, too, and i phoned a few drs and asked on the phone whether they were supportive of nonvax/selected delayed vaxxing families.  if they said they were, then i would ask for an interview.  i interviewed 3 good docs, and chose one we like.  no problems with it whatsoever.  :)

Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?
