    Men Need Not Apply....

    All my Doctor's are female...Eye Doctor, Dentist, Family Physician.....even my therapist is a woman.   It's nothing against the male Doctor's out there.   I'm sure there are plenty of great one's but I prefer my doctor to have the same parts that I do. ...

    Women Are Better

    I ask to see a female doctor as I find it better talking to her and there don't poke and proud you as much and have s gently touch. And easy to be naked in front off her then a male.

    that sort of thing with another woman. Sometimes, it can be very personal and it makes me feel weird to say those things to a man.

    Women Are By Far The Best Doctors

    I have had a female GP for the past 25 years. I find them much more attentive, caring and able to listen. I have had a number of urology problems over the last 10 years and have always gone to the same urologist until recently. I have had an inflamed or infected prostate for...

    More Empathetic

    Women doctors seem to be more empathetic than men, but there are no hard fast rules..... I enjoy women doctors because they listen to complaints with more sincerity. Male doctors seem to have an attitude like, well, 'suck it up.'

    I'm Uncomfortable

    I feel uncomfortable when I have to explain my womanly problems to a male doctor. It's nothing against them personally but in all honesty, I don't like discussing woman things with women doctors either but being with one makes it a little easier for me.

    My Female Doctor

    I have had a female doctor for several years. I originally picked her because she was in the system for a company from which I retired. After I retired I kept her because she is a great physician and actually saved my life. I don't think I could ever replace her.

    Somewhat unfortunately, I have reached the age at which the medical profession recommends a periodic prostate exam. If I must have a relative stranger put a finger up my anus and feel my prostate, I'd prefer that it be a lady.

    More Thorough

    I have had physical exams from both male & female physicians. My experience is that the women are less up-tight about full nudity than are the men.  They are also much more caring & gentle.  I also appreciate an explanation of what they are doing as it is taking place.
