After recently being "fired' from our current doctor for not following their vaccination schedule so I need to find a new one. I live in Westfield MA but will travel to find a good ped. Any help would be great!!!!!
I was told by my midwife that some of the pediatricians at Northampton Pediatrics are more open-minded. I live in Athol and my pediatrician here doesn't blink an eye that only my oldest is vaccinated and I stopped at age 2. It'd be a drive for you, and he's not all that pro-active, but he'll write out whatever referrals you want and if you're concerned about something, he's great with return calls. It's a small office so no NPs or RNs.
What's his name? It would be a drive but if I can find someone good it would be worth it. I already checked Northampton Ped's and they only have a NP that is open to a flexible schedule..so all shots are a must just delayed.
Dr. Thaker. I forgot to say that I extended BF my kids and no-one blinks an eye (at least not to my face). My youngest is almost 2 and I nursed one until almost 3 ... no-one mentioned it. They're not as crunchy as I'd like them to be, but really, my goal is to not be hassled and to be able to get referrals if I need them.
Let me know if you want more info, I am more than happy to talk here or in private email.
