    Dr Sears of attachment parenting fame faces Medical Board discipline

    Dr. Bob Sears, the Capistrano Beach pediatrician who is an outspoken critic of mandatory vaccination laws, faces possible state Medical Board discipline after he recommended that a 2-year-old patient forgo immunizations, according to legal documents made public Thursday.

    The board accuses Sears of committing “gross negligence” in 2014 when he wrote a letter excusing the toddler from future vaccinations after the child’s mother described an adverse reaction as an infant.

    The documents say Sears failed to obtain a detailed medical history documenting the unidentified boy’s prior vaccines and reactions, which was necessary for making an evidence-based decision. Sears’ recommendation left the patient and “his future contacts at risk for preventable and communicable diseases,” the documents say.

    Good. If there is a legitimate, medical reaction, by all means, I think a doctor should be able to write a note excusing a child. Allowing those who do not have legitimate medical issues to avoid vaxxing puts those who truly cannot be vaxxed at risk.

    Yeah I'm surprised he still has a license. I wonder how his father feels about all of this or if the apple isn't falling too far from the tree?
