If you do a search in this forum, you'll get lots of recommendations.
I personally like Dr. Piacentine at Mesa Pediatrics. They have several offices but, I think he only goes to the one on McClintock and Guadalupe.
He's never even mentioned vaxing to me but, prior to him, we saw another Dr. at the practice and while I adored her, she felt vaxing was important so she had me sign waivers at ever appointment. So, I don't know if he's seen the waivers and that's why he doesn't mention them?
I like that he seems to be very AP although I don't really talk about my parenting practices with him. But, he didn't even bat an eye when he found out I was tandem nursing my 3 and 4 year olds.
The only possible negative about him and this to me is very minor but, he does seem to give out some parenting advice - talks about chore charts, positive reinforcement etc... It's not a major part of a visit but, he does make suggestions. You can just smile and go about your business but, if something like that would bother you then, he may not be right for you.
As far as the rest of the practice - there isn't any other doctor there that I would be willing to see. We saw a couple and I they were antibiotic pushers and one mis-diagnosed DD as having asthma when she only had a cold.
Dr. Piacentine isn't like that at all. He takes his time, asks questions, doesn't hesitate to refer for further evaluation if needed, is great with taking a wait and see approach if possible, is very accessible - returns his own phone calls and is just all around a really nice guy.
