"I'm so stunned by reading this!! We used to see Dr. K and he has NEVER strong armed me into ANY vaccines with my kids EVER!! How frustrating and I'm sorry that you went through that! I know that he recently required that you sign a waiver…"
"Dr. Wendy Talley at Growing Up Pediatrics in Cornelius is respectful of non-vaxing families. We do have to sign a waiver, but I think that is for insurance coverage for her practice. She does tell me every time we see her that she strongly suggests…"
"Oh my flippin' )%$#)#*!!
I am furious to hear that about Dr. K!! You saw him directly? Not the NP or PA? Cause they are more fear-mongering than he. Dr. K has been jovial and light, if not detail-oriented. But, that worked for us, lol. Other…"
"Thank you so much. Ugh...someone recommended Dr. K to me. I went there for a well visit for my son so that he could start preschool here in Charlotte. I was soooo unhappy with him. He tried to strong arm me into getting a new 3 vaccine combo shot…"

Do you think you need a pediatrician for your children…"
I've dealt with a few different illnesses. Maybe you can call me tomorrow and let me know what's going on. Or maybe send your number. Pat and I are going to a conference but will have some time on the drive there and later in…"
Hope you are doing well, its been a while since I've come to the group MNOs but hope to attend soon and see folks again. This is kind of a random favor/question, but I seem to have a sick chicken and wondered if you had any expertise…"
"Thanks, lots of great ideas we can try. (I am a new member on the yahoo group as of last week.) We also read some information elsewhere about treating with arnica, do you have any experience with that? DH used arnica pellets on Sunday for muscle…"
"We had two recent discussions about poison ivy relief on the yahoogroup with many options to consider. Plantain, witch hazel and Epsom salt baths seem to offer significant relief.
Are you already a member there?…"
