Anti-Vax Friendly Docs List/Directory

Since several people have requested it,  I've compiled a list of anti-vax friendly docs listed alphabetically by state. Go ahead and add new ones in the replies, and I will edit my original posting to include yours....Please do not post unless you have a new one to add to the list, or a correction for an old one. Thanks!

Criteria for being an "anti-vax friendly doc" - please be sure of these criteria before you post.

  • Must not kick patients out of their practice or refuse patients who choose not to vaccinate/selectively vax/delay vax.
  • Must not make parents sign waivers that are worded so as to incriminate parents for "putting their child at risk"
  • Must not harrass parents every time they have a checkup or harrass them through the mail about vaccinations.
  • Must not belittle parents for their decisions or bully them with scare tactics - must respect a parent for their choices.


Enjoy! Now remember, these docs listed are ok with non-vaxing/delayed vaxing to varying degrees - be sure to call them and see what exactly their policy is.  As well, the doctors on this list have not necessarily given their consent to be added and may not necessarily be "anti-vax" in their practice.

Columbia, Maryland (MD) - Aruna Khurana (410) 997-8200


We take our son to Dr. Khurana. She is anti-vax friendly, but is also vax friendly and alternate vax friendly. Basically she lets the parents make their own decisions. I told her that we aren't vaccinating and she asked me to consider the HIB and Pc vaccines, but wasn't pushy about it and asked me to call if we decided to do them. Other than that... she hasn't been pushy or hard to deal with.

Please add Dr. Justin Krueger to the list in Marysville, OH. (937) 644-1441 www.marysvilleprimarycare.com <--- He's not on the website for some reason, but he does practice there. =)

He is not pushy, but wants parents to be educated. He said other doctors in the practice would refuse to see us anymore, but he said he wouldn't do that. He really is an awesome doctor!

FINALLY found a doc in Pittsburgh, Pa


Dr. Anthony Kovatch with Pediatric Alliance Arcadia division.


He is WONDERFUL!!!!!  He is AAP certified but very supportive of your vaccine choices.  The other doctors in the practice (I've heard) are ok with it too...but he is the most.

I started taking my girls to my family doctor-- Dr. Xuang Tran (woman). She is awesome! She just started her own practice and is taking new patients. She also just gave birth to her own baby and didnt say one thing to me when I told her I didnt want my kids to haveany vaccines. Not one word! It was so nice... for a change.

Dr. Xuang Tran is at the Legends Medical Clinic (on Joe DiMaggio Blvd over by Dell Diamond baseball stadium in Round Rock, TX). Phone is (512) 733-6464.

After my last appointment I think it is safe to say you should take Dr. Karen Foushee in the Augusta/Evans GA area off the list.

National University Of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL offers a free student clinic for children weekday mornings. The students treat the child with the oversight of a very skilled and experienced Naturopathic Doctor.
