Just moved back to Fremont after 11 years! Now I have a DD, DH and a quasi-crunchy lifestyle!
Can anyone recommend some practitioners out in my area who are open to non vaxing and alternative care??

I'm reviving this. Just wondering if anyone has recently found vaccine friendly docs lately, particularly one who is a part of the PPO networks. I thought I found one I liked in Mountain View. Turns out, she wasnt as nursing friendly as I thought. So much for that! She is even a lactation consultant.

She is pro-vaccine, but VERY laid back and respectful. She has an amazing bedside manner (blows bubbles for the kids and has a magic wand.)
Pro-breast feeding and cosleeping.
Also she diagnosed my sons borderline severe anemia just by looking at him, I was impressed.

Dr Sara Dobbs at South East Bay Pediatric Medical Group in Fremont! On Mowry at Civic Center. I have seen one other doctor in the practice once and also had a good experience. Dr. Dobbs does have a western med slant (she is a medical doctor) but she has been incredibly positive about me taking alternative choices and she gives me a lot of good information and encourages me to make my own decisions. I've been quite happy with her.
Alternatively there is Dr. Steven Crook at Kaiser in Fremont. He is *incredibly* alternativ-vax schedule friendly. We are switching back to Kaiser as of next month and I'm happy to be returning to his care even though I will be sad to lose Dr. Dobbs. I have every intention of moving back and forth between the practices over the years as my husband has insurance changes for job reasons. They are both *excellent* doctors and I feel blessed to have them here in town.
My advice may not be appropriate for you. That's ok. You are just fine how you are and I am the right kind of me.
