I am fairly new to Anchorage, and I need to begin my search for a good pediatrician or family practitioner for my baby, due in November. Preferrably one who will work with us in delaying/choosing vacs, supports breast feeding, and all that good stuff. Any recommendations?

TIA

I took my daughter to Dr. Penman, of Latouche Pediatrics for her first year. He is very good with babies and kids, loves them all. He is supportive of the parent choosing no vaccines, won't pressure you at all.

We use Dr. Chandler. he is the expert often interviewed on tv (bird flu, etc).

He is very provax, but respects my opinions.

He is anticirc

He is in favor of our cloth diapering.

He was THRILLED we are still nursing at 16 weeks.

He works for the Family Medical in Mountain view right now.
