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.

Dr. Robert Sears practices in Orange County if I remember correctly - you should see if he accepts your insurance.

We go to Dr. Lin in Irvine at Irvine Kids MD. We have Anthem Blue cross ppo. He uses a very selected and spaced out vaccine schedule and is ok with not vaccinating.
