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 guess something is wrong with me; according to the first few pages of replies. When I look for a doctor I write down the list of everyone than I call each office up and do an interrogation while setting up an appointment. I do choose doctors based off last name if they are Asian or Jewish they go to the top of my list of doctors to see. It's a personal choice and yea I would go call him after researching his last name and practice and how good he is than see him and call him by his name the time entire

I admit, it made me giggle, and yes I agree, it makes me feel a bit uneasy.
