We are moving to Canton from inside the perimeter. I'd rather not drive to Decatur to continue seeing our current ped, but will if necessary. We need someone who won't push vax, circ, unnecessary meds, etc. Thanks!!!

I'm a fan of Dr. Kute in Alpharetta.

I take my two to Kennesaw Pediatrics.  They have never pushed anything on me/my children.  


No questions on not having DS circ'd, work with me on delayed vax schedule, and converse with me as I am my child's voice.  They have a good number of docs to choose from and the staff has always been welcoming and friendly.  They have a PT IBCLC at the practice, as well.

I second Dr. Kute. She is pro-vax, but will let you decide if/what/when and not push the issue. She is also intact-friendly.

Depends on where in Canton you will be. I have taken mine to a ped. in Cartersville from Canton, Dr. Tom Ryan. I could go on and on about why he's a good fit for us, but the biggest thing is that he respects my choices as a parent (and a bonus is that there are no vax schedules hanging in the office or drug pushing posters).
