I am due this month with our first and still need to choose a pediatrician. We live north east of Indianapolis about 30 minutes but go to Indy /Fishers /Noblesville etc regularly. We are planning to delay or skip several vaccines and would love a recommendation for a pediatrician, family doctor or general practitioner who would be okay with that. Thanks mamas!

Congratulations on your pregnancy! It looks like your post might have been missed so I'm bumping it up for attention. :bump: Anyone have a recommendation to share?

I did. We are going to Noblesville Pediatrics. They will let us delay to one year and seem really nice. In my looking I found a recommendation for someone on the south side but I don't remember who, if that might be closer to you.

So are you going to follow an alternate schedule ? Noblesville is not far at all from me. And I like it's an actual pediatrician office.

We see Dr. Terry Mandel on the west side of Indy and he is totally find with delay/non-vax.  He actually recommends NOT vaxing until at least 2 years old.

He is a family doctor. He is affiliated with Westview Hospital and is a DO rather than am MD.
