I'm looking for a pediatrician in the greensboro/piedmont area who is open-minded to alternative vaccine schedules. Can anyone recommend someone?

I am interested in this question as well. We haven't moved to Greensboro yet, but I will let you know if we run across any when we do. Our baby is due in October. I would think that more Ped's would be willing to work with you though now that big case in out in the open. There was this couple, they have a daughter who received 9 vacs in one day and the next day she was autistic - like THAT, BAM! Perfectly normal child, I think around age 6 or 7 and then all of sudden she couldn't talk, etc. It's very sad, but maybe now someone will start listening to us.

Usually if you go to the doctor and say you're willing to space them out a month to avoid overload (you could say your family is very sensitive to vaccinations) they should be willing to work with you. If not, keep looking. A good connection to ask is an area chapter of attachment parenting. They know ALL the right places, they should be able to hook you up if you can find them.

wow--9 vaccines in one day!? i have never even heard of that. when my son went for his first round of vaccines (back in NJ) i told the DR i prefer not to have the "combined" vaccine. he told me he would then need to give 5 needles instead of 3. i said fine with that. he spaced them out into 2 visits. his big vaccine is coming up at the age of 2. that one worries me because that is the one that seems to have changed normal babies. my son has never had more than 3 vaccs in one day.
some docs will say they have never heard/studies do not show that vaccines cause autism. it's because (my doc told me this) they only read certain journals and only go by what they write. they "ignore" anything else. i guess they have to have one place to read and trust in order not to get "false" info.

Actually, there is no medical proof that vaccines cause autism. There are many things that have seemed to lead to autism, but cause and effect is not one of them. My mother in law works fighting for children with autism at the Cleveland Clinic Center for autism and does not believe that vaccines cause autism. I think she is pretty knowledgable about the condition and doesn't "ignore" anything. She is the one fighting for parents to get the childs care covered by insurance and school systems to cover the education. I think she would be looking for any link she could find to help these kids.

i did not mean to imply that Dr's are ignoring anything. what i meant was they only use the info in their medical journals, and ignore articles on the internet etc.
also, if you saw Jenny Mcarthy on Oprah, you will know why i worry

Dr. Benjamin Pusser in Winston-Salem. Also, you can use Dr. Boette in Greensboro (you may have to call information for number - he isn't in yellow pages.) I use Dr. Pusser. I recently switched b/c my other doctor changed his policy and won't do an alternative schedule anymore. I would LOVE to talk to someone else in the area about vaccines. Please post again if you want to get together - Theresa.

Hello to All,
I am new to Greensboro and am expecting my first child in July and I am interested in a pediatrician and one that will not give my kid 9 shots in one day as I read above. I was looking at some names in a list given to me and some are from Greensboro Pediatricians and were from Moses Cone Hospital. Does anyone know a good doctor in any of these two locations? I would greatly appreciate it.
Thank you

Hi everyone. I, too, am concerned about vaccines. My current ped is basically saying they cannot continue a relationship with us if we do not follow THEIR vaccine schedule and since I am not interested in taking undue risks with my child I am currently looking for a new practice. And I would love to discuss more about what you all are doing in terms of schedule for your kids. I have read that is is best to wait until 18 months to 2 years of age to begin vaccinations. Are you waiting this long?
