My husband and I recently moved to the Bentonville, Arkansas area. We have a 2 year old and a newborn. Our first son, we didn't get vaccinated, and where we lived we didn't have any problems with our pediatrician. Now that we have moved, finding a doctor who is non-vaccine friendly for our newborn is a bit of a challenge. Any suggestions on a family doctor or a pediatrician? Thank you!

Hi sarabeth, I'm sorry I'm not from your area and not able to offer any advice, but I am bumping this up for more attention. I hope one of the local parents can help out with some information. Good luck!

I really recommend joining the Natural Moms of Benton County group on facebook as well as the group called Birth Junkies of NWA. Both groups get this question a lot and these moms can offer you their experiences with many different doctors in the area.

I am moving back to NWA from Austin, TX, and I'm in need of a delayed/selective vaccination-friendly doc as well. Can anyone recommend someone?

We are brand new to NWA. We have a 12.5 month old, uncirc'd, mostly unvaxed son. I was wondering the same thing about finding a pediatrician. We went to Mercy Peds once and saw Dr. Jewell, who said he to be caught up immediatly. He has only had 2 vax his whole life, and she was pretty upset about that. So, needless to say, she is no longer our Ped.

I am on the brink of a move to the Harrison, AR area and would love to know of a non-vax friendly ped (or, better yet, family doctor) myself. Anyone?

Any Answers?

So, did anyone ever figure out anything? Is there a non-vaccine friendly doctor in NWA? I am now reconsidering my stance on vaccines, at least partially, but currently I'm not ready to do anything, but I need one of my children evaluated for autism. I'm thinking maybe I can just start taking her to a speech pathologist without going to a ped first, because language delay is the main problem. None of my children have had any vaccines, and until I figure out whether I've changed my stance or not, I want it to stay that way. I'd already printed out new patient forms online on one ped clinic's website, and then I saw their vaccine policy where it stated that if you refuse, you're not allowed to get care in that clinic.

Is this list still accurate? Currently found out Ledbetter is retiring and I'm having a minor 9 month pregnant freak out.

If you haven't found a provider yet, I can DM you a list! I don't feel comfortable posting it in the interest of avoiding harassment for the providers.(If you did find someone, I would also love to know who!)

I've tried a few doctors here now and so disappointed.
