I put it out there. I wanted the doc to know I know what i'm talking about, that i've educated myself. I said that i appreciate their input, even though i knew i wouldn't change my mind. I wanted to have a good relationship with the dr, and we do. They know where we stand, and they are respectful. I think when you just avoid it, it causes conflict. When you approach it with a defensive attidute, it gets ugly.
