I have a 4.5 month old son who is not vaccinated. I was going to a local doctor in Brea who was okay with that, but then my insurance changed. Now I have to find another doctor who is also okay with it. We went to one but he spent majority of the visit explaining why we need to vaccinate and didn't tell me much else about how my son was doing (health,developmental, etc). I don't want to pay all these co-pays interviewing each doctor in the area until I find one who is okay with our decision (we know the risks and we feel the benefits outway the risks).

Is there a mom out there that knows of a doctor who would be okay with no vaccines? Thank you for your help!!! Our insurance is Anthem Blue Cross HMO.

I don't have anyone to suggest but if you do find someone please post it to this document so we can develop this resource page further: http://www.mothering.com/community/a/vaccine-flexible-pediatricians That would be really helpful! Thanks!

Yup, Dr. Pam Middleton is great. But she doesn't accept insurance, although she will give you the receipt and then you can bill your insurance yourself. I took my unvaccinated home birthed daughter to her from when she was a newborn all the way until she was 2 years old, but then we moved about a 100 miles away now, so don't go there anymore.
