Hi!

I'm looking for a non-vax friendly family doctor or pediatrician in the Philadelphia area (accessible to public transport would be a plus!). If anyone knows of anyone- please let me know! Thanks!

Not in Philly, but in Phoenixville, not sure how far that is from you: Steiner Med, not sure if they are accepting new patients right now though!

Our doc is no vax-friendly, by which I mean she's pro-vaccine, but won't kick you out of her practice or lecture you ad nauseam. :) She's in Drexel Hill:

I think any of the doctors at Penn Family Medicine (located at Presbyterian Hospital 38th and Market Sts.) should be fine. Mine gave us a short lecture once, was willing to talk to us and answer any questions, but respected our choices. I also liked having one family doc for all of us. http://www.pennmedicine.org/family-medicine/
