LOl Nope, always nice vachi. I don't know why it has taken me a year to finally decide to make the switch... there are sooo many doctors to choose from in my area. It's pretty funny, because apparently this practice gets so many new patients form my old practice that they keep their number handy for reference! I did the interview today and met with the main doc, Dr. Nancy DeNicola (Holmdel, NJ). It takes me less than half the time to get there, and the office is small, brand new and adorable (with a model train running around the ceiling and a big fish tank, and a friendly main street town mural) They have a website and a secure portal where I can access vaccine and growth records and I can actually call--and talk--to the doctor herself, or email if I have a question and she'll respond! My old practice didn't have customer service anything like this.
More importantly, what I said was pretty much what vachi suggested. Her answer to me was that it is never her position to do anything more than advise parents and let them make their own choice (including vax. She has several patients who are not vaxed, and she follows a more spaced out vaccine schedule in any case, which is good, since I consider myself more in the delayed/selective camp), and circumcision is only cosmetic or cultural. She added that she's never seen an intact (she used the term uncircumcised, but I can forgive that) boy have a problem... but she sees problem circumcisions all the time. I was so happy when she said that part! She knew about intact penis care and is a very friendly and approachable person. I always suspected that doctors must see a lot of botched jobs, but to actually hear her say it that way "boys who aren't circumcised actually have far fewer issues with their penises than circumcised boys.... I see problems with circumcised penises all the time, but have yet to see one on an uncircumcised one."
I have yet to meet the doctor who I was hoping would have more of an understanding of intact penises due to her (I'm hoping) background in Hispanic (i.e. intact is norm) culture, but I am very, very pleased with how the interview went and immediately put in for a records transfer. I will still write a friendly thank you note to my favorite doctor from my old practice, and mention that bias is one of the factors in my departure.
