What's your opinion on physician gender in obstetrics and gynecology? Are female physicians always superior in this field owing to their greater natural empathy for lady problems and enhanced ability to put patients at ease? Or do female physicians tend to be more dismissive and less receptive of patient concerns than males in this field?
My OBGYN is a man and he's very good at his job, it doesn't bother me that he's a guy. I picked his practice because it's part of a facility known for being very good locally. You see a lot of dicks and vaginas working in healthcare and it's not sexual.
If I saw that my gyno was a male, I'd walk right out again. Men don't have sympathy for women and could not properly diagnose one, there are studies to show that.
Agreed. It's also your right to refuse them.
Usually I pick women, unless they're Brawn Hilda the Speculum Warrior or are old they're gentle enough.
