  • I prefer women, they just seem more in tuned to a woman's body and have a better bedside manner.

  • I was one of those "women shouldn't be doctors" people for a long time. But after going through 4 peds in 6wks with my oldest and only finding a female doctor that would see him, I really started to change my mind. Some of the doctors in my OB practice were female as well, and I had a woman deliver my first two children... But to be honest I was always uncomfortable with female doctors until just a few years ago... I still PREFER a man, but I think that goes back to that's all I ever had as a kid, so that's what I got comfortable with. Plus, I still see the same doctor that I had as a child, so I think that's where some of the issues come in at too, I don't like change. But at this point, I really don't care about gender, it's their beliefs and practices that I worry about.

  • Our family doctor and my ob are both male. I've tried female doctors, but haven't found one I like. However, I love our male doctors.
