John, this is a pretty involved topic, but I basically agree with your doctor. Many people do wind up with relatively weak rotators, EVENTUALLY - it doesn't seem to be a beginner problem.

A little prehab for intermediate / advanced people makes sense to me - a little goes a long way.

One other thing, please keep in mind that the external rotators are not the whole rotator cuff (supraspinitus is mostly an abductor, and subscapularis is an internal rotator) AND the rotator cuff muscles are not the only "little-muscles" that can get weak / disfunctional and cause shoulder problems.
