    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.

    I had an awkward experience two years ago

    that I wanted to share. I originally posted this on someone’s blog but I thought it would be good to post it here as well. I went to Germany to start working as a TV presenter on a local sports show and I needed to have a medical before I signed my contract. I went to the...

    My Doctor

    I've been seeing my doctor for a few years now - and that she's female, young and pretty really means much less to me now than the fact that she's a great caring doctor who went to top schools.  But my first visit was definitely memorable.  I was with my then girlfriend (who i...

    I always prefer women over men

    because I feel more comfortable with it since I am a woman and at a younger age, I was fearful of the men taking on certain occupations just for "benefits."

    I Prefer A Female Doctor

      I'm a 60 year old man, and for the last 17 years I've had the good fortune to be treated by a female physician of Chinese descent. She is in her early 50s now. She is very thorough, listens to your concerns, and has a light and kind touch. After moving to California...

    I just can't. I would much

    rather prefer a female doctor. Especially for a gynecologist, cardiologist, PCP. I just don't feel comfortable with male doctors. I can't be as open to my problems as I would with a female (since I'm a girl). I don't want to talk about my menstruations and pain and all with a...

    Indoubitubly! Okay, Yes I Do.

    I like women doctors more than men because they are more interested in your problem(s). They take the time to talk with you and give you a through examination. They also take the time to explain things to you and better than a male doctor. They are more caring and...

    I just feel more comfortable talking about

    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.

    One Man's View

    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.

    Women Doctors Care More

    Women doctors listen more than male doctors do. I feel like most male doctors I ever saw already had their minds made up about my problems before I even told them all the details. Women doctors also don't seem to be afraid to examine patients and most male docs I've seen act...

    Ever since I was a teenager,

    I've preferred having a female doctor. From my experience with both male and female doctors, I feel more at ease with a female doctor doing what needs to be done when it comes to routine checkups. That, and I'm less worried about what she might say if I end up getting "excited...

    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.'

    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.

    For many years, I cringed at the thought of going to a lady doctor, let alone having her examine me. Needless to say, I was overly modest. I had a pre-employment physical in 1980, and since I didn't have my own doctor, I went to my wife's doctor...a lady. I had met her before...

    I've always had a female doctor.

    I'm just more comfortable that way. All my doctors are female except my retina doctor and my dentist are male since I don't have to take my clothes off for my eyes or my teeth.
