I also posted this in Member Resources. I didn't quite know where I would get a better response.
I have read the previous discussion about someone looking for a pediatrician. But I wanted to start a new discussion on this topic. I have a 2 month old who has seen a regular pediatrician at his 1 week visit and then at the 1 month visit. I had scheduled the 2 month visit and then canceled it because I knew he would be wanting to give my child the vaccinations. We had previously talked about vaccines with him. He is pro vaccines.
So, I am looking for a non vax friendly pediatrician or family practice or any other doctor/naturalist. The only thing is that no one mentioned about how much it will cost you out of pocket to go to a naturopath doctor or similar doctor. I looked at some of the other doctor's websites that were in the previous discussion. I would really like to go to a holistic type doctor but not sure of the costs. Most of the holistic type doctors do not accept insurance or actually the insurance doesn't accept those doctors. Anyway, I would like to know a couple of things. First, do any of you go to well checkups if you don't get vaccinations for your child? Also, would any of you be willing to tell me about how much you pay out of pocket to go to a naturopath or holistic doctor?
Also, we currently have medicaid for our child. And, I would be traveling a really good distance to go to any of the doctors that y'all mentioned in the previous post. We live in Gaston County. Does anyone know any doctors/pediatricians/family practices/naturopaths/holistic doctors anywhere close to here or even a little farther away. I'm willing to drive but I would like to know of all my options that I may have available first.
