we're about to move to Oklahoma City and are looking for a Pediatrician (if such thing should still exist...having my doubts here after being kicked out of a Ped's Office) who would accept an unvaxed child.

I'm hesitant to sign up with Naturopath/Osteopath since we just had a bad experience with an Osteopath who is great when "everything's fine" but as soon Kiddo was sick wanted me to bring him to a Ped.

I'd appreciate any names in Oklahoma City! Thank you!

I really enjoy the OU Ped Clinic here, the phone number is 405-271-4881. Dr. Corbin sees my son, and she does ask me if I want to vaccinate at each visit but has never given me grief for declining.

Hope this helps!

The best I've been able to find here is tolerant and even some that have been recommended to me as tolerant came off as not. Anyway here is the list of those I remember.

Maschino in Edmond (only her not the other dr in her practice)
Julie Morrow, downtown (came off as rude IMO)
Stephens at Mercy (Heard good things haven't tried him yet)
There is another in Norman that is supposed to be good search this forum for Norman and I'm sure you'll find his name.

All of these are merely tolerant of it. The only dr I have known to be antivax here moved to TX over a year ago. Good luck.

Stephens is great! My family knew him personally even before he was our ped. While he's not anti-vaxing, he's never given us any grief over any of it. We declined all the stuff at the hospital and went home the same day. He had no problems with any of that. He does ask if we want shots at the appts, but doesn't blink an eye when I decline.

I could definitely recommend him!
