Tell them upfront you are looking for a doctor whose knowledge you can trust and whose ethics you can respect. A doctor who performs routine infant circumcisions is neither. It would be great for offices to hear this, to know that they are losing an opportunity to grow their practice because of performing circumcisions. If they try to explain that they ARE knowledgeable about intact care but perform circumcisions as a "service" or because "parents request it" or "we respect the parent's choice," you could ask if they respect parental choice enough to perform the service of making a tiny pinprick, just enough to draw a drop of blood, from a baby girl's prepuce, in order to satisfy a parental request. When they disgustedly inform you that they would not do such a thing, you can say, "Ah, so you won't make so much as a tiny needle stick in a girl's prepuce, but you will gladly rip and cut off the entire healthy prepuce of a boy? Well, no thanks, I will continue my search for a practitioner with some real ethics - and who is not sexist, to boot."
Or to keep it shorter and simpler, tell them you are looking for a physician who practices evidence-based medicine, and a doctor who routinely performs surgeries that are NOT medically indicated will not suit your needs for a knowledgeable professional.
