Preferable Dillon, Butte, or Hamilton, but would travel a bit further. I know I am going to get harassed again at well-child checks, and just want to stop it. I'm not sure if we can see a family doc, as dd has growth issues, but would love to find someone just to see. Thanks!

I know I just posted this yesterday, but wanted to bump it for the "New Post" Montana mamas who might catch this but not check the tribe very often. Thanks again!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

In my experience, MT docs tend to be non progressive. have you checked out a naturopath in your area? we've had great results in Bozeman.

Further north, but check with Big Sky Medical--Paul and Diane Eodice in Helena. They are DO's and we've had great luck with them. When I let them know that I felt my kids were 'up to date' (we did tetnus only) on vaccines based on my personal beliefs, I didn't hear another word about vax. They also were very open to my using chiro to help heal ds's lungs and he is now off all asthma meds. When we were in there last week, I asked about getting a tetnus update for both boys as we are moving overseas, and they said...they're good. Get one if a cut/injury happens. (And we were IN for a sliced open finger LOL) They haven't had one since they were 3 and they are 10 and 13. They were also great with EBF--nursed ds until he was almost 4.<br><br>
They also cared for my surro-babies after birth and their parents didn't vax, and no Vit K shots at the hospital. Not a peep about it even at follow-up office visits for jaundice in his first week of life.<br><br>
IMO, docs are also a little more hands-off with vax if you don't approach it adversarially. Ask if they are okay treating a patient who isn't vaxed on the traditional schedule (or not at all) and that you are informed of the risks/benefits of vax but choose not to. Peds seem to be the worst....as I think they get the push, push, push all the time from the state/fed vax programs to keep the numbers high.

I thought I would bump this up again. I'm really needing to find someone, naturopath, family doc, pediatrician, who is okay with a more crunchy lifestyle, and I would LOVE recommendations. Helena is really far and out of the way for us <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">. Thanks!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Ooooh if you'd see a naturopath! Dr. Jerry Taylor is a Naturopath who does house-calls anywhere in Montana 406-422-6302 He is licensed as a primary care physician in Montana, so some insurances cover him even. <a href="http://www.nuturinghope.net" target="_blank">www.nuturinghope.net</a> for further contact info. And, it's great, because he will come to you! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

We see Dr Jill Robinson in Butte/Anaconda. We are following the DR Sears selective schedule and she allows it. She also never asks about bedsharing.
