Hi all.  Totally new to this.  I'm just starting research.  I have a 18mo who has received all shots on his pediatrician's schedule.  We're expecting another in March.  I'm not sure if I'm leaning to the selective/delayed or the no vaccinations route, yet!  Anyone have recommendations for pediatricians?  The current office we use has the stance that if you don't get them on schedule, they don't want you as their patient.  We live in Lake to Lake, McHenry and maybe the northern portion of Cook.  Thanks in advance!

We absolutely love Dr. Elvove in Libertyville -, he's great with the kids and really knows his stuff. I don't trust a lot of doctors, but I do trust him.


He used to be a home birth doctor and I don't know if he's still delivering at Highland Park hospital. His office is well-known for having a very relaxed stance on vaccines. If you do a search here on Elvove you'll find a few threads on him and a few other doctor's in the northern burbs.


I've heard of a Dr. Minkus in Skokie and there is also HomeFirst in Rolling Meadows (they have a concierge fee for their services).

Dr. Elvove, Dr. Minkus, and Dr. Ettner would all be a good fit for you.
