Does anyone know of any pediatricians that accept patients who waive vaccinations in Southern New Jersey? We have UHC Community Plan, and we are willing to drive an hour if we have to (and I know we will), we are in Pemberton Township. Thanks!

We are in Gloucester county and drive a little over an hr to Stockton Family Practice in Stockton North Jersey to see Dr Freedenfeld. He has no problem with no vax, he has his own modified schedule for those that do want to vax. If you live outside the norm in this area, (we do!) I definitely reccomend him.

I  go to Rainbow Pediatrics. They seem to be just about 1 hour from Pemberton.


We do not vax our DD, and the staff, while not happy about it, lets us do what we want. I've gotten a few minor lectures from one of the doctors, but that's the worst I've had. One Dr in particular, an older man named DR Flick, does not seem to care and has never questioned our choices.


Its an okay practice but I don't think I would drive an hour for it.

Kidswell has merged with Advocare Greentree and no longer allows non-vaxing.  They did grandfather some folks in (from what I've heard) but Advocare requires all children be vaccinated.

I persoanlly found Dr. Freedenfeld to be arrogant and very rude to me :(  


Although Dr. Freedenfeld was supportive of my decision not to vaccinate, he continually dismissed my questions and told me to stop worrying.  Any time I asked for clarification on something he said or questioned anything, I almost always recieved a smart comment in return.  


During my last visit, he stepped over the line with a sexual comment that I did not appreciate.  Someone told me a few years ago that he made a sexually harrassing remark to her and I was surprised.  I honestly thought maybe she stretched the truth but now I feel bad for second guessing her.  He was completely out of line at my last visit.


Needless to say I found a new doctor for both myself and my child.  If you choose to go to Freedenfeld, I certainly hope your experience is much better than mine was.
