Does anyone have any recommendations for me? I am at a loss. And yes, I have checked out the Dr. Sears website. Thanks!

Homefirst Health Services is very supportive in whatever vaccine decisions you make for your family. They have several offices scattered throughout the Chicagoland area.

Crunchy check list:  2 homebirths (one accidental UC!), co-slept, no CIO, cloth diapers, home/un school, raw milk drinker (!) I am a walking cliche!! I even blog and knit...

I'm going to move this to FYT where you'll get more responses

Dr. Elvove in Libertyville is non vax/delayed vax friendly!

Dr. Fred Ettner in Evanston (just north of Chicago) is very comfortable with delayed vax.

Seconding the Dr. Ettner recommendation. He's great for multiple reasons, and is very comfortable with delayed vax (in fact, recommends it).
A lot of people also like Dr. Minkus in Skokie too, though I've never met him.

I've had a great relationship and experience with our pedi, Dr. Lisa Winters Smith. She's associated with The University of Chicago Hospitals and practices out of the office at 87th and Greenwood. Dd will be 3 next month and has had 1 vaccination - 1 she got before we realized what we were doing!

And when it was time for her to start her early childhood program, Dr. Lisa (as we call her in my house), pulled out the appropriate form we needed for school (Waldorf, so, they weren't really asking) regarding DD's health/vaccinations (or lack thereof).

She's been great!
