Would you take your baby to a doctor with this name?

So I was recently looking for a new pediatrician for DS and I searched within a 10mile radius of my area code for a pediatrician. One came up at children's hospital named "Dr. Badcock" I couldn't help but giggle and look over it.

would you take your child to a doctor with that name? TBH it would make me feel uneasy...

Edit: to all those that are telling me to grow up. You can call me immature or whatever but not once did I saw I wouldn't pick him as my pediatrician. All I said it would make me feel easy. It would be extremely awkward for me. I don't pick my doctors based on the name, did you stop to thing that this guy might not be close enough to me to take my son there on a regular basis? And before you say "then don't look in a 10mile radius", I put in for a 5mile radius and it didn't bring anything up and when I set it to 10miles it ended up bring things up that could have been listed under 5miles. Like his doctor now that was only 3miles from my house
Way to be the stuck up CMs of this post:) everyone else had a giggle just as I did I guess they need to grow up too? Or you just need to get the stick out of your ass:)

I think it would be a shame to just pass the doc over because of the name.  I would giggle...but I wouldn't take the doctor off my list.

I actually happen to know ob/gyns with the last names of Dick and Wang.  It's a fun night when Johnson works at the same time.  They do work on the same floor...it tends to give us a giggle.

Lol that would be a deciding factor for me, if that's what you're asking.

I would never choose my child's dr because his name, that's kinda petty. How the dr interacts with the child and how he cares for them is more important than a name someone can not control.

Yeah... Name doesn't matter as much as how good of a doctor they are...

It's funny but I wouldn't turn the office down bc of it. When I had cancer the oncologist who helped save my life was Dr. Belch. A silly name but a great doctor!
