<p>I am new to this site and have never done something like this before, this being said, I felt it was the only way to speak to Mothers who could help.  I currently see a doctor who is part of the South County Hospital campus.  She has been wonderful (up until recently) about my decisions to delay vaccinations or be very selective.  My husband took out daughter to her 3 year checkup for the first time without me.  When he came home he was very upset.  The doctor barely looked at our daughter and began to question what vaccinations she would be having that day, and that she should be started on the chewable fluoride pills (I wasn't even aware of this protocol).  She knows, as we have had many discussions about them, my views on vaccinations as well as fluoride.  I was stunned that the one time I am not there she bombarded my husband about it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>THAT BEING SAID, I am seeking a doctor in South County area who takes health insurance, can write prescriptions (when absolutely necessary!) and who is not pressured by drug companies or anyone else to get all of their patients vaccinated with everything possible.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I am so frustrated and don't want to start doctor hopping with my children.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>HELP?</p>

<p>South County where? <span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> Probably your best bet is to post this in your tribe section.</span></p>
<p><span>If you can't find a peds Dr, you might be able to go to a Family Practice Dr instead, they are not always as rabid about vaccinations. A DO might be an option too if you can find one. I couldn't.</span></p>
<p><span>Good luck</span></p>
