Didn't have any success so far finding a ped in cincy, how about south Dayton? I found a doctor in North Dayton, but for now we are in cincy so I don't want to have to drive that far. I don't really care about someone up to date on BF, I can deal with that. I just don't want a hassle regarding an alternative vax schedule.

thank you!

I know several people who use this practice, and have no issue with declining vaccines.

My kids go to Pri Med Pediatrics in Huber, and I have no issues with declining vaccines (I do have to sign the stupid waiver, but I heavily edit it). I know that Huber is too north for you, but the Pri Med group might have a practice south. I'm sure the policy is the same (i.e. that they don't "fire" non vaxers) although you'll probably find some drs more pushy than others.

I have one Ped that I don't recommend after a recent Court decision. S/he seemed rather centered on everything going through him (ok, I am just going single gender at this point, much easier). Basically he is the "gatekeeper" of your child's care. That if your child has tubes, even if they get an ear infection, they should go to him, rather than the ENT to who placed the tubes for several attempts to "clear up" the ear infection first, then if after several different antibiotics it is still there, then a referral to the ENT.

I am of the opinion that if my child has tubes and needs to see an ENT, that is who I would rather have treat for all those types of needs (same with ortho, allergy, asthma, etc).

I will def. second cornerstone. I know one of the ped's through another friend, and she is attachment parenting friendly and practices much of it herself.
