Does anybody have any idea about pediatricians that are supportive of not vaccinating or delaying vaccinations in my area???

Have you found anyone? I'm in the same search. I have a consultation with Dr Korcz of Hoover Alt Md next Thursday. She vaccinates but is knowledgeable about alternative medicine too, so I'm looking forward to chatting with her. Bham is just so controlled by the medical establishment....

Good luck!  I don't know of anyone at the moment.  We have vaxed our daughter but spread the shots out.  It drives my pediatrician insane.  Already started the 'we are not getting gardisil conversation' and he is not really happy about it.

Actually I never had the consult. They apparently didn't have me down for an appointment. She's had some major turnover in office staff evidently. So I'm debating rescheduling and/or continuing my search elsewhere.

We moved out of B'ham within the last year, but when I was there, my homeopath mentioned Angela Redmond as a pediatrician who would defer vaccination. Not sure about where she is--seems like somewhere around Mt Brook or Homewood??

We are with Pediatrics East right now. We see Dr. Youngblood. They have a very clear statement on all of their initial patient paperwork that says they will not keep you as a patient if you are non-vax. Dr Youngblood is ok with delayed/alternate schedule and has worked with us so far. I am looking for someone else simply because I want to avoid any future vax for both kiddos. Let me know what you hear from Dr Redmond. I am curious as I whether she really is non-vax friendly!!!

I tried very hard to get an appointment with Alt Med, but was given the run around, and then told they weren't accepting new patients. I'm looking into going with ********** Integrative Medicine now, is anyone using Rebecca ******? I'm desperate to find a pedi.

Dr. Korcz with Hoover Alt MD is taking patients and she is non-VAX friendly!  Had issues with some bad staff, but has a good team, now.  Try again, they are really great...
