It's not my intention to hijack the thread but I was not aware of such a list and would be eager to see it. I'm in East Tennessee and I've not encountered many foreskin savvy medical personnel.

It wasn't really an issue with my SO but I did have him watch the Penn & Teller BullS*** episode on circumcision. We found it both informative and entertaining.

I live in Powell, just outside of Knoxville. I really like it here. If you like whitewater, there are a few nice spots in Townsend (about 45 minutes away from Knoxville).
