We've had a great experience with Dr. Penman. Great about no-circ, OK with no vacc for our youngest but the big thing for me was our first was hospitalized for jaundice and the nurses brought out a bottle of sugar water. Dr. Penman said "just nurse him" and nurse him I did! The one time I had an issue w/ my intact sons was one well baby visit a med student was doing the exam and said "now we'll pull back the foreskin and take a look" and I quickly said "no you don't". I also got he impression Dr. Penman was anti-circ, but I don't think he would make you uncomfortable if you chose to. With vaccinations, he's definitely pro-vac, but we have thoughtful discussions and he has totally respected our decision and hasn't been pushy about it at all. I also like the visit where he said "ah, nice bruises on the shins and forehead, I see he's not getting too much TV" :)
