My husband and I recently moved to the Bentonville, Arkansas area. We have a 2 year old and a newborn. Our first son, we didn't get vaccinated, and where we lived we didn't have any problems with our pediatrician. Now that we have moved, finding a doctor who is non-vaccine friendly for our newborn is a bit of a challenge. Any suggestions on a family doctor or a pediatrician? Thank you!

Hi sarabeth,  I'm sorry I'm not from your area and not able to offer any advice, but I am bumping this up for more attention.  I hope one of the local parents can help out with some information.  Good luck!

I really recommend joining the Natural Moms of Benton County group on facebook as well as the group called Birth Junkies of NWA. Both groups get this question a lot and these moms can offer you their experiences with many different doctors in the area.

I am moving back to NWA from Austin, TX, and I'm in need of a delayed/selective vaccination-friendly doc as well. Can anyone recommend someone?

We are brand new to NWA. We have a 12.5 month old, uncirc'd, mostly unvaxed son. I was wondering the same thing about finding a pediatrician. We went to Mercy Peds once and saw Dr. Jewell, who said he to be caught up immediatly. He has only had 2 vax his whole life, and she was pretty upset about that. So, needless to say, she is no longer our Ped.

I am on the brink of a move to the Harrison, AR area and would love to know of a non-vax friendly ped (or, better yet, family doctor) myself. Anyone?
