I have two clients, one in Salem/Keizer and another in Aloha who are looking for Pediatricians or Naturopaths who are friendly towards no vaccination or delay vaccination decisions.  It seems that this changes all the time and I recently found out that several caregivers who I previously thought where good recommendations have switched their beliefs.  


Any recommendations for these families would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You

Ed Hoffman in Portland if they are willing to drive across the bridge from Aloha.  I'd ask Ondra Watson a MW in Beaverton, she might now for the Aloha mama.

I live in Hillsboro/Aloha - Dr. Paul Thomas and the team at Integrative Pediatrics. He is wonderful. I have not had good luck with his NPs, so you should recommend that your clients ask for an appointment with Dr. T. I went through 5 pediatricians in the Portland area before I found understanding with Dr. T. We are on a slow vacc schedule and we only treat with homeopatics both of which he supports.


good luck!

I second the dr. thomas recommendation.  They have "shot clinics" two days a week for convenient monthly newborn vaccinations.   And there is an urgent care clinic after hours!
