Ever since my son was born 20 years ago, I’ve only had female doctors. I’m sure there are some great male doctors out there. The surgeon who operated on my mom last year was one of them, and if I ever need abdominal surgery, I’ll look him up, but in the meanwhile, I find female doctors seem to take more time, have better bedside manners, take what I have to say into greater account — so that’s who I’m sticking with if at all possible.
