I'm asking specifically non-vaxers because so many docs seem OK with selective/delayed vaxing but aren't OK with not vaxing at all. I know about Kupperberg & Mcgonigle, but who else is out there??? Are family docs generally better about this than pediatricians?

Getting pretty tired of changing doctors...

Co-sleeping is really wonderful when your child actually SLEEPS!! familybed1.gif

We see Dr. Russell Stokes in Westerly, we do not vax at all and he's completely supportive.

We're seeing Dr Jeffrey Wilson in Cranston. He's a family doc with a speciality in pediatrics. My Bradley birthing instructor recommended him. He's very moderate, very reasonable, and has never given me any grief whatsoever about our completely non-vaxing status. He also (bless him) helped convinced my then wary dh it was ok not to circumcise.

I live in Cumberland, so he's about a 40 minute drive from me. But I think he's absolutely worth it.

 

I do believe that, yes, family docs are less likely to toe the offically sanctioned line than many pediatricians. Speaking very generally, of course.

 

Good luck with your search :)
