Hey everyone - 

 

I found some old posts on this but none of the doctors ran through as true anti-vax acceptable doctors, or were out of business. Does anyone have a family practitioner (preferred) or pediatrician who is accepting anti vaccination families?  We do not vaccinate at all, and although I can stand my ground on that with pretty much anyone, I'd rather have a doctor that I can trust and speak with without being manipulated or judged.  We are new to the area and I have two kids and one on the way.  This sick season we've had to use urgent care a couple times due to my lack of ability to find a doctor who can fit our needs.  Thanks to anyone can help!

I've heard that Dr. Black in Katy is tolerant but not necessarily supportive of non-vaxing. Dr. Dibble in Magnolia is fantastic and very supportive and I'm pretty sure that I have heard this practice is supportive as well: http://drmanso.com/about-us/about-de-wells/.  Hope that helps!

We go to Dr. Noha Salem at Texas Childrens at BW 8 and I-10.  She has been wonderful with our not vaxing. I haven't found any accepting peds closer to Katy.

FYI - the TCH pediatricians will not follow your child in the Hospital. Since it is a teaching hospital, they have a strict call schedule. Even with specialists, that is the case. So if my DD gets admitted, the pulmonary team will follow her, but we will not see her pulmonologist unless she is the one on call.
