Hi, I'm new to Polk county, just moved here from Palm coast and have 3 unvaccinated children who are in need of a local pediatrician. Do you have any recommendations, it seems like it gets harder and harder to find doctors who are willing to take children who are not on the recommended vaccination schedule.
Sorry. I just now saw this.

Yes, The Robinson Family clinic!
