  1. Dr Matthew Hjort
    Norwell Pediatrics

  2. Dr, McKenzie was VERY supportive of our decision NOT to circumcise, even told us he left his own sons intact who are now young adults.

  3. Dr. Cooper has been totally hands' off with my son's penis, didn't ask about circumcision at all and I've heard similar positive experiences with him from a variety of people.

  4. Dr. Fernandez made a special point of telling us to not retract (although it had never crossed my mind!), and has generally been a very good wholesome doctor.

  5. I wanted to comment on Dr Harootunian (Dr H) and other doctors on the South Shore. We did not see Dr H when my son was young but I was pregnant so I asked him about this issue. He said he will do a 'gentle' look to observe the meatus, but won't do that if requested not to by the parents. When I asked more about that, he stated that was how he was trained. (In fact I did look up info and it is still in the literature for pediatricians, I think it was on the AAP site, even though the AAP parent site says no retraction).

    Despite this, I would still recommend him because he will listen and is respectful to parents- but I suggest parents address this ahead of time to make sure they are comfortable- and he may even had other parents tell him this in the meantime.

    I still live in the South Shore of MA and am part of a few local AP group. If you are looking for AP/holistic practitioners there are other drs in the area:

    Circle of Life in Hanover, Dr Griever in Halifax, Dr Smith in Pembroke (Harbor Medical), Dr Walcott & Robertson at Pediatric Health Care in Braintree and Dr Vonnegut in Quincy have come up as recommended several times.
