I have found lots of people mention Catalina pediatrics...and they dont take our insurance
Is there anymore that are delayed vax/non circ friendly?
I am currently registered at the clinic on the AF base (yeah...less than great ) and im hoping to convince Tricare that I need an offbase ped. (my friend managed it, so im hopeful )
Also, I've heard about a clinic downtown at Congress Street Health care, or something like that.
Created an instant family (7/89 and 5/91) in 1997. Made a baby boy 12/05 adopted a baby girl 8/08. Ask me about tandem adoptive nursing. Now living as gluten, dairy, cane sugar, and tomato free vegetarians. Homeschooling and loving it.
We go to Cushing Street Family Practice and they didn't blink when I said neither children would get vaxed. They are awesome there.

I have heard good things about Clara Vista Pediatrics (@Speedway & Pantano), but have no personal exp. there...
Proud Mama to West - a delightful 3 yr old who loves to and . Excited for a new little bean in late April 2013!
When my first was jaundiced she never said anything about formula. She just said to nurse as much as possible and get him in the sun even though his levels were pretty high.
Anyways my first was assigned to her because when he was born it was only her and one other ped. When dd was born they assigned her to one of the doctors and we called and switched her to Col Murphy.
My son goes to Tanque Verde Peds. We love them. HOWEVER, I was turned off by the letter we got prior to his first visit, stating that they believe in vaxing on schedule and if you don't want to vax, don't come to the practice. That being said, they didn't force DS to get the chicken pox vax or flu shots, and they didn't force the prescribed schedule on him. Since he was in foster care, he HAD to be vaxed, so I don't know how flexible they would have been if I'd wanted to refuse all vaxes across the board, but it's worth talking to the doctor one-on-one if you like everything else about the practice.
Also, DS is not circed and they have never ever touched his foreskin or made any attempt to force retraction, so I see that as a good thing.
but anyways...i'm here trying to find another ped for new baby Reeve. I'll look into catalina but i gotta call AHCCCS and see if they accept all these people! so FYI though Silverbell ped isn't a good choice! it was on a list the birth center gave me so i thought...hey if the birth center recomends then they must be at least a little different...guess not.
i just recently switched my kids to have a DO (doctor of osteopath) be their PCM. took them today for their first check up. i told him flat out that i don't vaccinate, and he said that their office doesn't offer vaccines, and while he, personally, thought they were good, he totally respects my choice. he didn't even flinch when i mentioned i'm still nursing my 18 month old. he seemed like a nice guy all-around, though the appointment was pretty basic, he just checked their eyes and ears and stuff, weighed them. never checked under the cloth diaper my boys are 18 months and 3, though. i don't know how he handles newborns, or how he deals with intact boys. anyway, since tricare doesn't cover naturopaths or chiros, i figured a DO was my next best bet. we're probably not going to be here too much longer, and i don't routinely do well-child checks (this was the first in over a year). the guy i took them to was Dr. Scott, he's on Glenn near craycroft, is covered through tricare and currently accepting new patients, and takes kids.
