“During the first couple of years in private practice, I recommended that childhood vaccines be given per the CDC recommended schedule just as I was taught to do during medical school and residency — because I presumed it was based on good science. Then I began spending more time with patients while viewing the person more as a whole and asking myself how I could be a true partner in someone’s healing journey rather than the typical ‘what drug can I prescribe to cover up this symptom.’ That is when I began seeing patients and parents of patients come into my practice talking about their vaccine injuries. At the time, this was surprising to me, and so began my more open and independent search looking into the efficacy and safety of vaccines. And, when my wife became pregnant with our first child in 2014, I began delving into vaccine efficacy and safety with more curiosity than ever before. There is always a time and a place for almost any medication and/or vaccine. However, the potential risks of many of the vaccines are clear.”
