Hello everyone! My husband and I and our 10 month old son are moving to Bowling Green, Ky from Denver, Co in the middle of september, and I'm looking for a doctor for my son and willing to drive to Nashville so Tennessee families, help us out!! We are trying to find a pediatrician who is AP friendly, but most importantly accepting of our non-vax beliefs. A doctor who isnt going to write a prescription for everything, and leans toward homeopathics is also a huge plus. PLEASE PLEASE give me any and all suggestions you can think of! I appreciate it so much! Thanks in advance

I know this is a little late... but...

I have an awesome pediatrician in Franklin, TN (20 miles south of Nashville) His name is Dr. Kalb and he does natural and traditional medicine. My now 6 1/2 m.o. caught whooping cough in December and he has never tried to push vaccinations on us. He gave us a homeopathic medicine to give her for the whooping cough. They let the parent decide if they want to vaccinate and don't try to sway you either way. I don't know this for sure but I was told that he only does individual vaccines and no combo shots. It may be worth looking into. I have some friends that are the same with their beliefs and they live in your area. I could find out who they go to, if you are still looking for a provider.
