Thinking about this more, and putting myself in your shoes, another reason I'd have difficulty with this is that, as a doctor (or a Chiro), the line between doctor/patient and mom's BF/authority figure are now blurred. It would make me much more comfortable to keep those lines clear and separate. If they end up having difficulty with mom's BF, it shouldn't be made worse by the fact that he is their chiro.

If she wants the kids to meet him, and you are on-board, would a social setting (one where the kids can choose to keep their distance, if they prefer) be a better compromise? If so, maybe you could offer this instead and give her another option that isn't "I'm going to do it anyway"?
