Hi! We moved to the Carlsbad area north of San Diego, and we have yet to find a pediatrician out here. We are looking for someone that is open to not vaccinating especially- I want to be able to discuss things with the pediatrician and not feel the pressure, kwim? Also, we are looking for a general family dr for all of us as well. We would like to stay in the North county area, but if we have to drive further for the right one we will.
We did look in to Dr. Sear's, but he is a bit of a drive (I'd really prefer someone closer), and he doesn't accept insurance (I know others in the practice do..but really prefer to be a bit closer)
Thanks SO much!
Hi! My midwife's practice has a pediatrician referral list, and though I have no experience with these pediatrician's, they are supposed to be non-vax friendly. Here are the one's close to you:
Steve Balch, Thomas Neglia, Anna Mendenhall
Rosalind Dockweiler, Fred Frumin, Christine Wood
Michael Krak, Michael Karp
I also have the names of a few osteopaths that I have personally used with my kids, so if you are looking to go that route, let me know! Hope that helps a little :) .
We made an appointment with Dr. Pamela Wells in Carlsbad and I really liked her. She didn't pressure us at all (she does believe in vaccinating but was TOTALLY fine with us either not vaccinating, selective, whatever- and when I asked for her honest opinion about specific ones, she was very open but not pushy AT ALL)- now we have only been to one appointment, but I do like her so far.
