I am relatively new to Greenville, and have two young children.  My youngest is almost two and has never seen a doctor.  I'd like to start his immunizations at two, on a delayed (obviously!) schedule.  I don't want to play catch-up, giving him lots of shots in a short time.  I wonder if anyone has a recommendation for a Ped/ND/Family MD that will not give me hassle about the vax/no well visits etc.  Thanks,

Emily

I have heard wonderful things about Dr. Stafford in Greer:

Yep, Dr. Stafford's philosophy is that you are the child's parent, so he will follow your wishes.

We also use Dr. Stafford. His philosophy means that if there is something you WANT your child treated for that is not immediately and seriously apparent during a routine well-child visit, you will need to speak up and ask him to intervene and/or refer you to a specialist. But that's just fine by me.

Thanks, everyone.  I did visit Dr. Stafford, and saw his nurse practitioner.  She and everyone at the office were lovely.  I appreciate the suggestion, and would definitely recommend them to others that may find this thread during their search.
