Indiana, Ohio, Michigan > Non-vax friendly pediatrician in Columbus area?

I tried to take DS to the ped for a checkup last week. As we were checking in, the receptionist asked for our vax records since it was our first visit. I said we don't. She immediately said that we wouldn't be able to be seen at that office, period, if we didn't. I'm kind of p*ssed off about it, to be honest. You refuse to provide medical care for a child because his parents make medical decisions for him instead of just doing what they're told? Good to know, didn't want a doctor like that anyway.

 

So now I need a non-vax friendly ped who also accepts Caresource. We need something kind of soon because I'm going to have a homebirth any day and it's just easier to get a birth certificate if you take the baby to a pediatrician after the birth. Anybody know anyone good?

Dr. Blackburn practices with a couple other doctors at a group whose name escapes me, but she is very vax friendly and ok with whatever you choose, we do not have insurance, so i dont know what insurances they take, but they took what we have before we lost it:) 538-9339 is her number. i believe the practice name is River's Edge Family Medecine, but i am not sure on that. they are located in dublin on bethel rd.

Dr.Sant at wholekidspediatrics.com is pretty amazing.

If you see a chiropractor, they are able to fill out the paper required for the birth cert :) Mine did, since he has mass experience with homebirth and my pedi had none.

Most non-vaxers or selective vaxers I know use Dr. Sant.
