Under “About,” we read about Dr. Ayer and his philosophy of care:
“‘Being a pediatrician is a great privilege. The most rewarding part of my job is the relationships that I have developed with families at Pediatrics Northwest. Watching kids grow up and develop over time is a gift, and I love being a part of this process. In a complicated, sometimes frustrating medical environment, my job is to give the best care possible and advocate for my patients. I want my PNW kids and families to receive the same type of medical care and attention I expect for myself and my kids. I also believe my duties as a pediatrician extend beyond the office walls and drive me to advocate for kids through the American Academy of Pediatrics and other avenues.’
While growing up in Tacoma, Dr. Ayer attended Meeker Middle School and Bellarmine High School, before going off to college and then going on to study medicine. Dr. Ayer and his family attend Trinity Presbyterian Church. He stays active by jogging and enjoys spending time with his family. He also loves to travel and spend time outdoors. Dr. Ayer is married and has three children.”
The doctor should really ask himself if the patient whom he just circumcised actually wanted this mutilation and if the boy is glad you took that choice away from him. Certainly not the “best care possible” from the patient’s point of view.
Here’s a blurb about the doctor being voted “Best Pediatrician in South Sound Magazine’s The Best of South Sound 2014.”
Doctor, listen to the many men who are not happy with what you do.
Under “Services” and “Circumcision” (spelled “curcumcision” in the url) we see who does the cutting, and on video, there’s Dr. Ayer’s colleague talking about how you should swaddle your baby after he uses a tourniquet on his penis, and how you can watch it happen, because he “has nothing to hide.”
Here’s the video on YouTube and some of the resulting comments:
The reason why the person in the video is so happy is because of the money he is making on Male Genital Mutilation. He doesn’t understand the concept taught in medical school of “Do no harm” This is such an atrocity to the basic human rights of males and it disheartens me to see a male here advertising the procedure. He knows damn right well it isn’t medically necessary. Ask his counterparts in the UK what they think….oh wait…they stopped doing it there.
How about don’t take a scalpel to a healthy baby you sick child abuser.
“How to Care for Your Son ”
..lets just stop right there. Because Cosmetic genital body modification is for consenting adults, NOT children.
charlatans. stop foisting genital mutilation on unsuspecting parents solely for profit.
Circumcision is genital mutilation and COMPLETELY UNNECESSARY and a HORRIBLE assault on an infant!
Only in the US, is an entire male sex organ considered a birth defect. The health benefits, where are they? Work in a STD clinic, most men who come in for treatment are circumcised.
Circumcision is ugly looks ugly is against nature against humain anatomy, and a human rights violation.
The foreskin and only in human male are the only part than we amputee without true reason. Circumcision is unnecessary.
I am also pro circumcision, I am expecting a daughter soon and plan to have her circumcised, it’s part of my family’s cultural beliefs and its more hygienic for girls to be circumcised.
