And what about the gay doctors? The women would be safe but they would be commenting about their hair and shoes!

However, there is a question in the back of my mind that my friends and I were discussing last week. Can you take the "man" out of a male doctor when he is working with an attractive female patient? I don't necessarily mean an OB/GYN, but any doctor from internal medicine to a general practioner. Do men doctors notice attractive female patients? Men are the more stimulated by the visual than are females, hence the reason why I am asking this question about the male gender.

What is a male doctor thinking as he sees the shape and body of a fairly attractive female whether he is taking her blood pressure, taking her pulse, or giving her a breast exam? I have always heard that a doctor should not look at the patient or the breast while giving her an exam. Is this true? This question also popped up in the conversation with my lunch friends last week.

I'd like to hear from both doctors and patients.
That's why I divorced the S.O.B.

A "misunderstood" nurse. End of discussion. If you (or anyone you know) is contemplating this, don't: "Did he say if they notice only the young, slender types or any type they deem attractive? Say the doctor is 40 and the patient 30. Or does he only notice the teens and 20 somethings?.

Yup, they do. They also notice the really ugly, the unusually tall, the one with the funny shaped birthmark, it's part of getting to know the patient.

Now if you want to know if the male doctor is aroused by the beautiful female. I guess he could be, but if he's smart, he has a nurse in the room with him and that sort of keeps things in perspective. After a while it becomes the same old, same old.

Beauty is certainly appreciated, but he's an idiot if he goes beyond that.

A doctor once examined my sister's breast during a routine check up - no OB/GYN - without a nurse in the room. Nothing out of the ordinary happened - it was routine. But still, shouldn't they always have a nurse in the room?

Yes, always, if he is smart. If someone sues for sexually inappropriate behavior, he has the nurse their to confirm that nothing happened.

Why would he perform the exam without a nurse in the room? Don't they know better?

Time, busy , the nurse was doing something else. If she was there to have her breast examined and it was expected, no big deal. If she was there for an ingrown toenail and had her breast examined....

I like the earlier comment about a Dr taking a blood pressure. Been a nurse for 20 years can count on one hand the times I have seen a Dr take a blood pressure ! I'm not slamming Docs, that's just not what they do.
