I know this is a long shot but does anyone know of a pediatrician who is ok with not vaxing that takes Tricare ANYWHERE in the Houston or surrounding areas. I am in Northwest Houston, but I don't plan on taking my son there very often but just want to have one for emergencies so I don't care where they are located. They just need to take Tricare.

If you have a good ped. that is ok with not vaxing but don't know if they take Tricare or not, let me know that too and I can call and ask.

If anyone knows any midwives, hospital or home, that take Tricare, I would love to know that too.

I don't know the ins and outs of tricare... but I'll toss my ideas out

Krenie Stowe has an office in the Woodlands that takes insurance. They well may take tricare- I have no idea. But worth checking. To my knowledge she's the most non-vax friendly ped. in town.

I would think that any midwife who files with insurance would take tricare - as long as you have out of network coverage (have I heard that called tricare prime maybe?) There are a number of homebirth midwives who will file your insurance.

hope that helps!

Dr. Cassandra Dickerson in Sugar Land is fine with parents deciding what they want re: vaccination. I like her overall approach, though we've only been in one time. In general she accepts insurance, not sure of any except my own kind (and at the moment, I can't recall what even that is... except not Tricare).

I think her website is .

I would also recommend Krenie Stowe.

I wouldn't go anywhere near FM 1960 pediatrics, even if you were a completelly mainstream parent. My son had allegies and because of it was constantly sick. All they said was 'babies get sick, particularly ones in day care, put hyrocortinsone on his rash. And then they would give us yet another script for antibiotics. I am convinced that he would have gotten very ill if we'd kept up with that line of treatment. Dr. Stowe immediately got him on antihistamines and recomendeded an allergist. Now he is well almost all the time and his ecxema is cleared up.

Plus we always can see her where as we never got to see the person who supposed to be is pediatrician at the other place unless an appt was made way in advance.
