The Letter I Wish I Could Send To My Old PediatricianDear Dr. Asshat;
You probably haven’t even noticed that I pulled my child out of your practice but I wanted to take a minute to explain why I did. You SUCK! Your lack of curiosity about my son’s medical decompensation and subsequent Autism after his over-vaccination under your care is offensive. Apparently “do no harm” really means “do not care”.
Do you know that my husband hates you so much that I can’t mention your name in his presence? Yes, we blame YOU. Since the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) had the forethought to indemnify all pediatricians with zero legal liability before implementing the harshest vaccine schedule in the world, my only recourse is this letter. “Oh, but…” you whine, “we don’t know that vaccines cause Autism.” Actually, if you read the vaccine package inserts we do know and they do.
I saw that glint of panic in your eye when I brought Nick in at 18 months, three months after receiving the MMR, Dtap and Hib in one visit. Over those three months we had been in the Emergency room, spent countless hours with On-call pediatricians and Sick visits for unrelenting ear infections, bronchitis, and endless rounds of antibiotics. At that 18 month visit I told you Nick had stopped speaking and I saw the faintest shadow cross your face. That was your suspicion about what had happened. If you’d had the balls to say it out loud then; “Vaccine Adverse Event”, we could have begun the healing immediately. Instead you abandoned the truth and left Nick and I helpless to figure it out.
