Dr. Potterjones is a family doctor with Muhlenburg Primary Care and she is very easy going and she is for a delayed vax sechedule, but also stands by the parents decision for selective vax too. I've been to several docs in the area now and she is the most open minded that I have found so far. I've also heard good things about Dr. Lisa Caso, I believe her name is, on Rt. 248 in Easton.

Yes, Lisa Caso uses a delayed vax schedule with all her patients. We follow her schedule but I've heard from others who delay even further or decline to vax, and she is okay with that. We've very AP (co-sleep, exclusively bf to 6 months, did BLW, etc.) and she is totally fine with it all. On the few occasions where she's mentioned something we don't plan to do (rice cereal between 4-6 months, for example) I just explained what we were planning to do instead, and again, she had no issues with it. She also doesn't give out parenting advice, which I appreciate—she strictly sticks to medical and nutritional info.
With that said, though, I'm sort of thinking of switching to Christine Potterjones since she's a family practice doc and DH and I should have someone we can see if we need to ...
I can't say enough about Dr. Potterjones! She is just plain awesome and NEVER has rushed me during a visit. The only downside is that there is sometimes a wait to get in to see her for "sick" visits, but I have seen Dr. Vellore in that group for myself and she was awesome too.
