Hi there,<br><br>
I've purchased Mothering mag for about a year now, but just discovered the website and board. I'm in Grand Rapids.<br><br>
I'm currently looking for an alternative Ped's Dr. I have 3 1/2 year old Son who is fully vaxed and 1 1/2 year old Daughter who I stopped vaxing after 6 months and lots and lots of reading and discovery. Over the last year I've run into a couple things with my Dr. (she's not too please with the no vaxing) and am trying to find a Dr. with a more open mind to the holistic/naturopath kind of thinking. Is anyone familar with such a Dr in the area??<br><br>
Thanks for any help and I'm looking forward to all the info I'll discover here!<br><br>

Hi,<br><br>
I approved your membership to the Michigan Forum <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
We see Dr. Joseph at Advantage Health Downtown (by St Mary's)<br>
They "accept" non-vax patients (which we are), though they personally are pro-vax. I like Dr. Joseph because his wife is a LLL Leader, so he supports extended breastfeeding, delayed solids, cosleeping, etc.<br><br>
There are some other ladies on the board that have more "holistic" peds

Hi and welcome to all the grand rapids NP boards <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
I already answered you in the vax board - but we use a family doc Jeffrey Johnson. He was referred by another natural momma and we've been very happy with him. He's not anti-vax, but is cool with it either way... his office does not currently have a policy on accepting new patients without vax - but we were told if it did happen we would be grandfathered in and it wouldn't affect us..
