I have some female problems that I need to take care of, however, this is a sensitive area and I need to change doctors do to religious reason and something he said to me.
I don't want to go through this again. What would be the best way to find out the position on certain issues a doctor might have or what he will do? Is a phone call to the reception out of line?

I had a very similar situation. I had a doctor, who I saw for the first time, ask me about my spiritual beliefs. I was coming to see him because I wanted assistance for my ADHD symptoms. He looked at me and said, "Your not ADHD. Have you found Jesus? What church do you go to?" When I answered (and I should not have) he mocked my church! Needless to say that was my last visit. He basically said my issues were related to being a woman and not having Jesus. His perspective. Mine was he was an asshole and I'm not referring any friends to him anytime soon. My response: I wrote a letter to him because as a professional he needs to know he was offensive and derserves the opportunity to make changes in his practice for future patients. At least one would hope.
