Its very common for doctors to not know proper care of the intact penis. Ever heard of David Reimer? He and his twin brother were incorrectly diagnosed with phimosis at 6mo (when there is no such thing) and David wound up losing his entire penis during the circ. And he wouldn't have been circ'd in the first place if his doctor wasn't an idiot.
