    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 have had great doctors,

    young and old, male and female. I deliberately chose my current MD because she was young, cute and female. She won't retire before I pass on, good point! I am of an age which I need a little Rx help with my stiffy and it was kinda nice talking to her about my sex life. Also...

    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...

    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...

    They have one themselves therefore should know not only what it should look like or how it should work but how it can feel.

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

    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

    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.

    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.
