Birdinhand, I think that's great advice. I have a great relationship with my OBs and ped, and have talked with them casually about how frustrating it is to have their patients constantly questioning them because they "Googled" it. Both are open to discussing risks vs benefits of any procedure, appreciate informed patients, and are always happy to be pointed in the direction of new research to check out. I think more and more docs are feeling constantly attacked by people who don't always do the best research, ya know? Not saying all docs are great and you should never question, but sometimes I think people unintentionally set themselves up for adversarial situations. Some docs are just jerks though!
