Looking for recs for a pedi that is vax friendly (we are non-vax). We're in Cypress area, but depending, will travel a bit as we don't see the pedi very often at all.

I'm new to the Houston area and could also use some ped recommendations. I'm in Katy and looking for a Dr that is OK with delayed/select/alternate schedule vax, or no vax.

We're moving to Houston in June and I'm looking for the same thing. (We're non-vaxing.)

A neighbor of mine that is non-vax gave me this list (might not be totally up to date)

Dr Manso (Houston and Katy) www.drmanso.com

Dr Fowler (Katy) www.pedsofnwh.com

Dr Ann Schoeder-Lee (Memorial City) Supportive of families right to choose vax, she herself was an EBFer, will regularly recommend LCs or chiropractors, respects families choice to bed share or co-sleep, intact educated. greatkidspediatrics.com

Dr Micheal Knapick (Cypress) 1960 Pediatrics Accepting of alternate vax schedules. Conservative with prescriptions, recommends alternative treatments. www.texaschildrenspediatrics.org

Dr Laural Scott (Sugarland) OK with all vax alternatives. Educated on intact care. does not recommend circumcision. www.texaschildrenspediatrics.org

Dr Cassandra Dickerson (Sugarland) Accepts delayed/select/non vax Supports bed sharing, EBFing, understands AP choices, intact educated, ABX conservative. www.dickersonpediatrics.com

Dr Nellie Gross (W Houston inside 610 loop) Family practice that offers chiro, massage therapy, holistic medicine. EBF, non vax and alt vax options, co-sleeping, HB, intact and AP advocate. www.tchh.net

Also a heads up, it takes a week or two to get the vax exempt to enroll in school! You have to request a form online, wait for them to mail it from Austin, and then get it notarized before your child can start.

Most of the doctors at Texas Pediatrics Kingwood (which is actually in Atascocita, ironically - it's on W Lake Houston Parkway) are good with delayed/selective vax. Not 100% sure about no vax, as we didn't go that route. We personally LOVE Dr. Barnhart, though he was concerned about our decision not to do MMR. He brought it up once, and hasn't again.
