    As long as someone isn't confusing trust in medical capability with a different parenting philosophy.

    If a parent thinks a doctor is really making inadequate medical decisions then they should report the doctor to the medical board. If they are not sure (...if there is a chance there was a miscommunication and the parent didn't seek clarification ... If there is a chance different lifestyle choices or philosophy is at play...). then people need to keep that in mind and be very careful about who they talk to the doctor about and what they say.

    Given the size of the surgery I suspect the popular and trusted Doctors are booked up. I still think s smaller more personable surgery would benefit in this case.

    I'm not sure what you are trying to say. Care to make it clearer for me?

    No worries I will have a try at explaining. First I need to stress though that this is not specifically in relation to anything SA Girl has said or done. It's more directed at some of the advice SA Girl has been given - I believe feeding the hype (jumping to conclusions about a doctor) can unnecessarily encourage the cycle of miscommunication and panic to continue.

    If someone has concerns over the medical care a doctor is providing then they should put their money where their mouth is and lodge a formal complaint against the doctor. If a person is not prepared to do this then they need to think long and hard about whether their concerns are more to do miscommunication and/or a different parenting or lifestyle philosophy (in which case the person needs to be very careful when venting to others in terms of misrepresenting what has occurred as well as slander if sufficient details have been released to enable the doctor to be identified).

    I do see where you are coming from.

    It's like the drs that told me to wean my DS when we were not ready. Or to sleep train when it would not work for us.

    I was able to ignore that advice but if it is medical advice that is wrong/dangerous then yes you should feel like you can report it - if noone knows then nothing can be done.

    In this instance I have no advice as DS isn't 3 yet. Yes, there are doctors with an 'old school' opinion and mentality and this dr looks to possibly be one.

    What did concern me is:

    *did the dr ask/inform you he was going to retract the foreskin? If not, that is wrong. Whenever I have a papsmear my dr tells me what they are doing and asks for permission even though I know what is involved. I think it is the same here. If he said 'I'm just taking a look' that is still not enough.

    *did the dr advise anything like creams? Or explain what it could be other than 'might need to be circ'd'. If not, then that again isn't malpractice or anything but it is feedback that can be provided. Also they should give the opportunity for questions as well.

    Maybe I have high expectations but I found that I am only comfortable seeing a dr that does all the above.
