Does anyone have any recommendations for holistic/alternative pediatricians (or at least one who is open to alternative vaccination schedules) located in the Alexandria area?

I don't know if Arlington near VA Hospital Center is too far, but Barbara Stevens will do an alternative vax schedule. I have heard that she will not allow no vax. She is not really holistic, but she listens and is open to you using alternative medicines. I guess her sister is more into holistic so she is learning. She has a solo practice on Fairafax Drive.

We see Brendan Sullivan at Lakeridge Pediatrics. He hasn't fought us so far and let us do selective/delayed. Not sure if he'd do no-vax, haven't asked.

Nurse practictioner Amy Landis at that practice was very familiar of the Sears schedule and extremely supportive, she was my fave.

They're mainstream tho, so not sure if that's what you're looking for. I may switch to Irwin now
