Sorry but I disagree with those saying you'd contaminate surgery. I've had my husband in the same room with me, so I know it's not true. There's no law or rule for it. The door was left open anyway. I think some doctors just don't want you to distract them, but you can demand to be there since you are paying the bill. I'd find another doctor or at least one that has an assistant in there with him, just in case something weird happens. I certainly would not let a female child be alone with any doctor. I've seen numerous stories of inappropriate touching under anesthesia or just wiping their hands on a girl's napkin on her chest to "cop a feel."
