What has been your experience with this practice? Do they try to scare you into vaxing on schedule? Do they kick you out of the practice if you delay or don't vax? I'd appreciate reading about any experiences you've had.

I don't have any experience at Hopkins personally, we go to the Rimland Center, Advocates for Children with Dr. Mumper on Old Forest Road. She is well known for her vaccination protocol - you can see it online. She is very flexible, and a good supportive staff. She is known for her autism work - so she really knows her stuff about vaccs. I would highly recommend her!

Katherine Nichols from the F Read Hopkins Practice is very nice. She's not said anything negative about our delaying vaccinations for our 2 yr old. He's not gotten Hep B shots or the chicken pox vax either. She talked to us about each vaccination and let us make the decision as to weather to get it or not.

Stay at home mommy to Jack, Ben, Marjorri and baby due Dec 2014!
