As the mother of a (now adult) intact son, I myself would have greatly benefited from knowing about the last 3 questions. I still find it shocking that my (quite well-known) mostly-progressive ped actually did a “momentary, slight” retraction during a well-child visit! Perhaps a couple sorta sneaky “litmus test” questions up top would save folks embarking on this entire comprehensive list w/ someone who’s a non-starter? E.g., “In the case of a hospital delivery and initial visit, do you prefer to examine the baby in the nursery or in my room?” Anything other than “It’s really best if your baby is NEVER in the nursery,” saves you the “Well there’s an hour I’ll never get back” blues! Marcy Axness author, “Parenting for Peace: Raising the Next Generation of Peacemakers” Lec January 7, 2015 at 11:29 pm Thanks for publishing this list. I’m so bad a thinking of the right questions when I’m at the doctors, they always seem to come to me later. There has been a few times where I have rung up and had a phone conversation after an appointment.
