Opinion: Why doctors fire patients—The great vaccine debate

Chicago Tribune, March 1, 2012

This story was especially interesting to me, as I now only accept new patients who plan to vaccinate their children. This was not an easy decision to make, and prior to formulating the policy, I had encountered several families who refused vaccines completely, and another group that followed "an alternative" vaccine schedule. I was never comfortable with their decisions, and it always gave me pause and sleepless nights when their children got sick.
