hypospadias

I have a 6 day old baby boy.  in the hospital the dr went to do circumcision and didn't do because he noticed dimple where penis hole should be and slightly under that is the hole.  A pediatric urologist wont even see me for 6 mo's but in the meantime no u/s or other diagnosic tests have been ordered to even see the extent of hypospadias. I cant have him circum. until he's looked at but if problem is mild he wont need surgery but still will have to be put under for circum. .  Shouldn't  he be looked at now because if it's mild he can be circum. now w/ topical instead of the risk of general anastesia?  Also what tests are done to determine extent?
