How do I find a pediatrician in the Chicago-land area who supports our choice not to vaccinate our child?

We've decided not to vaccinate our daughter and our pediatrician does not want to continue to see us anymore because if us choice. I am not interested in debating,m(I come from a very conservative, mainstream family--with plenty of opinions for everyone) I'm just looking to find a doctor who isn't condescending and who is supportive. I still want them to be an MD, just not an MD with a closed mind. Any suggestions? I'd love to hear how you overcame any issues regarding your personal experience with the topic...we live in Chicago, and we'd be looking around here... Thank you ladies!

I'm aware, and this is not just an opinion. It is fact based on countless years of research. I wish you good luck, truly. I hope you find a good pediatrician. No debate.

As I said in my post, I am uninterested in personal opinions, or debate in this; but so you're aware, iAutism is not the only factor one thinks of when choosing not to vaccinate.

I'm sorry but I agree with your pediatrician. I'm a pediatric MD in a big city and I wish you could see what I see resulting from not getting children immunized. This includes death, even to other people's children. It is unfortunate that someone published a false report regarding a link between autism and vaccinations. Please become more informed and more open minded for your daughters sake.
