    Especially when I go to urology

    I have always seen women doctors.

    In the past the distance was inconvenient, but now as I have aged there are more women MDs in my area. And my insurance has gotten better as my salary as gone up over the years. I never had a bad experience with a male MD, I have just been this way.

    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.

    not by much, but its better

    than going to a male doctor who thinks he's in charge of the situation and has a say in how things will go. at least with a woman doctor they already know you can't be made to do what they say cause they know you know they are evil

    My Rheumatologist is very knowledgable in this

    field and she is one the nicest doctors that I have met in my life. I wouldn't have anyone else taking care of my lupus, but her.

    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 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...

    If I have to a person holding my balls while I cough and inspecting my penis, it's surely not going to be a young Taiwanese man. I don't care if she's 75 and senile or 25 and beautiful, I just prefer a female doctor to talk to me about my balls and penis. I know I'm unique in...

    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."

    but my current one is amazing. She will spend as much time with you that is needed just to be sure that you are getting all the help you can get. She is very calm and gentle and for a tough nut such as myself it's a calming feeling that lets me beat my stubbornness and tell her...

    In my experience, female doctors

    and pediatricians of both sexes seem most likely to treat patients like human beings. Rather than a machine.

    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...

    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 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.

    All this negative talk about male doctors is

    just going to push men out of the medical profession and health care in general. More lost job opportunities.
