To me, this sounds like a fine ped who is in line with your beliefs. We vax on schedule, and would prefer the ped to be close and to be the one to take care of baby upon delivery. I couldn't care less about personality. And close is huge...DS had medical issues and we had a weekly appointment with the ped (every Wed at 4) for months. I would not have wanted to drive far! Close is important to me. Affiliation with the children's hopsital is important to me. But no way would I drive 20 minutes or more to a ped.
