 We moved to Baltimore (Roland Park area) a few months ago. We have a 9 month old and our previous ped it turns out knew how to leave an intact penis alone. We actually were unaware that medical professionals out there were still so ignorant and at our last appointment the new doc pulled back some - not cool! Now, she pulled gently, peeked at the meatus, and the baby did not flinch, but my husband and I are still very upset about it. We talked with her after it happened (it happened so fast!) and she said she would never forcefully pull it back.  When we asked that she drop this from all future exams, she seemed hesitant to agree.

 

We need a new ped - fast! Any recommendations? We have bluechoice (a blue cross) insurance and live in the northern Baltimore area. We have had a couple of recommendations of better docs on this issue, but they are a bit of a drive or in less-than-safe neighborhoods. 

 

Thanks in advance for all of your help!!!

Maybe you could post in the Finding Your Tribe area.  You might get more people who are local to you to view it & possibly post.  There is also NOCIRC which gives recommendations for intact friendly docs.  I've only seen it posted here to contact her (Marilyn Milos) if you are having a medical problem that your dr. isn't helping you with, but if all else fails, perhaps she can be your last resort.

 

Best wishes,

Baby the babies while they're babies so they don't need babying for a lifetime.
