Does anyone know of a delayed vax friendly ped in Melbourne? I'm also looking for someone who is familiar with uncircumcised boys. My biggest problem has been finding a ped that will accept my baby as he is on Medicaid. Can anyone help?

My current ped just told me at today's 2 week appointment that I should be retracting my sons foreskin to clean at each bath. I was not feeling 100% confidant with him to begin with and now I know that our ideals are quite different.

Hi! we are new to the area an are having a hard time finding a pediatrician that is tolerant of our no vax position. Have you found any in the melbourne/viera/palm bay area? We are willing to drive further if needed.

I go to

Children's Healthcare of Brevard- Margaret Witzleb

(321) 951-3261  January 1 2013 the number will change to 321-775-0476

She is wonderful and will see unvaxed kids. Very affordable even for uninsured!

 

she can recommend other physicians that will see unvaxed kids

 

She told me Dr. Cortes will see unvaxed kids, but I have not been there myself.

Margaret is the bomb!  Very respectful of my "wacky" ideas and she does an extremely thorough examination.  She has also started referring patients to a naturopathic practice.  Although she circed her own boys, she regrets it and wishes she had not done it.  I don't know if she recommends retraction, but I doubt it.
