My due date is THIS Saturday...and I have no pediatrician.
About four months ago I did a ton of research on here and saw that MANY people recommended Dr. Injac with Pediatric Medical Group. I called and made sure they were taking new patients.
Turns out....they refuse to take us now. My husband just called their office and was told that they under no circumstances will allow any patients to delay vaccinations or selectively vaccinate...well...we plan to not vaccinate at all. They told him we couldn't even sign a waiver.
So now I have no pediatrician for my baby due in three days, and I'm freaking out!!
I need someone who:
1) Allows non-vaccination (we will be declining all))
2) Supportive of EBF
3) Empowering of parents
4) Conservative with antibiotics
5) Pro non-circumcision (or at least okay with it)
6) More natural-minded or more integrative in their approach
7) I would /really/ like someone who has privileges at Texas Childrens Hospital
I think you're right, alegna. I have a TCH pediatrician, who I didn't know had the zero flexibility policy until after we started seeing him. He said it's a new TCH policy. Ugh.
We see TCP providers, and haven't had major issues with our delayed/selective vax. I heard all over MDC that they had a policy not allowing it, but heard from a local moms' group that they hadn't had any issues with it. That has been our experience, as well. That being said, we didn't ask about it before we made appointments. We just made the appointments for well checks, showed up, and said, "This is the vax we want today", and that was pretty much it. We've had a couple of doctors talk to us about our decisions, but never in a rude or bullying fashion.
