I would love to be able to take my son into the doctor without getting guilt tripped and fear mongered about not getting him vaccinated, and I'm starting to wonder if that is even possible. Are there any pediatricians in central Arkansas that will be respectful of our choice not to vaccinate? Thank you for any replies! I really appreciate it.

Dr. Jane Miers @ Sherwood Family Medical Center in Sherwood. LOVE her. We moved to Mountain Home but I still take my kids to see her if we need a doctor while we are in the Little Rock area (which is really frequently).

really?? oh that's great thank you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
any idea what she will say when she finds out? What did she say to you? We aren't just delaying, we aren't doing vaccines period so I dunno if that makes a difference.

She didn't really say much to us. Something along the lines of "oh, ok. I'll make a note of that in his chart so the other doctors don't bother you if you have to see one of them." She talked a bit about what vaxes she doesn't recommend anyway and that was that.<br><br>
I was actually going to get ds his teatnus shot at his 2 year WBV b/c I figured he's a boy, he's bound to slice himself on something nasty or rusty at some point. She talked me out of it. Said how rare it is and as long as you get the shot w/i 24 hours (or something like that) you'd be ok.<br><br>
A word about her, though, you end up really waiting to see her. I know that it is simply b/c she really takes her time with her patients, but it can still be irritating. I've waited over an hour in the waiting room before, but at that same appointment we ended up being back in a room with her for over an hour (he ended up needing a chest x-ray and a blood draw, both facilities are available in their clinc, and she ended up direct admiting ds to the hospital in NLR).
