I don't remember my mother ever leaving me alone in an exam room with a pediatrician when I was younger. I don't intend to leave my son(s and/or daughters) alone, either--and not just because I'm paranoid.
If I'm not there, how do I know instructions are relayed properly, or that questions that need to be asked are asked?
If it prevents some pervert from raping my kids, all the better.
Though, once they force mandatory Medicaid up our collective ass, do you think the AMA will be assigned a "safe pediatrics offices czar" like we were a "safe schools czar? If so, then I'm betting that this guy will be it, and I will definitely switch from a pediatrician to a family practice, and still won't leave the kids alone during any exams.
