OMG My daughter got kicked out of her pedis office!!

My oldest daughter took her 12 month old for his checkup. They wanted to give him MMR and chicken pox. My daughter said "no" she didn't want to do them right now. The pedi said "get out of my office we don't treat patients that don't vaccinate" OMG she is so upset. I can't believe they would do that!!

Unbelievable!!! The nerve of some people Probably better she learn this now and can get a new ped. then to suffer through bad advice from this jerk any longer. I hope she knows that she is a good mama and doesn't feel like she did anything wrong. Her baby her choice!!! What a jerky intimidating mean thing to do! to your daughter.

Geez, what tact. I would definitely find a new ped. You know, one that cares about the patients and parent wishes/thoughts/feelings.

Yea, I'd run away from them fast!!! I'm so sorry she felt attacked...... just like us mommies - we all have different thoughts views on this subject and there are many Drs who do also.

on a side note: did she research or ask this Drs thoughts/views on vaccinating? If this was a 12mo check up - were there no signs (comments etc) that this Dr. was very pro vaccines up till this point??

This has been the baby's dr up to this point. She did do the usual 2-4-6 mths shots but told her she wanted to wait on the mmr and not to the chicken pox. That's when she go mean. WOW I'm so shocked dr's would act that way. Of course we all no why don't we, because now they don't get their bonuses from the drug companies for giving those shots!

Wow. What a great bedside manner. Not.

Sounds like she needs to find a new ped regardless...who wants to go to someone as closed minded as that?

I wish I could say I was shocked but after the doctor experiences I've had recently I'm not surprised.

I've decided that at some point in med school they must take away tact and common sense and replace it with ego and judgment for all things not "mainstream".

I had one refuse to see us because we delayed vax, though he was caught up! I hate bully doctors.

Well, its private practice so they can choose that but it stil sucks that he was mean. He coudl have been very tactful and just say "I'm sorry but you'll have to arrange fora new doctor. We have a policy about vaccinations here". I hope she can find a new doctor that is willing to accomodate her!
