She has no office, but comes to your house for appointments so there is no wait time and no sickness from other people. She runs on a membership basis depending on how many kids you have. You perk is you get the pediatrician's cell number and can directly contact her as needed.

These are great pediatricians. Many will allow a delayed vaccination schedule:

OHPA http://www.ohpa.com/ (615) 352-2990 Bellevue/Belle Meade

"I use Dr. James Keffer. He loves kids and babies. I love how he listens to all my questions and answers them. His staff is very respectful and I am normally in the exam room within 5 min. of my appointment time. They are willing to let me delay vaccinations, but not choose to have no vaccinations. I also found him pushy after my kids became teenagers. He wanted me to leave the room during the exam and was upset when I refused.

I have Dr. Cormier for my teenage daughters. They wanted a female pediatrician who was down to earth."

 

"Our pediatrician is Chris Smeltzer at Old Harding Pediatrics. I recommend him for several reasons: He listens to what I have to say; is good at talking/distracting with my 3 year old (who freaks out whenever we go to the doctor's office; won't even let the nurses put him on the scale without a fight); doesn't make things seem like a big deal, but competent; when I talk to him he sounds like he is keeping up with the current research in medicine; and he's never talked down to me or made me feel like an idiot because I was worried about something that turned out to be nothing."  ♦Laura C.

  "Very pro-breastfeeding, but also non-judgemental of bottle-feeding or anything like that. We chose to go ahead with vaccinations, but they asked us our preferences before giving my little one anything at all. I feel no pressure, it's a very laid-back office, and the pediatrician spends 10 minutes or more in the room with us answering questions and catching up."
