Your loss not ours.
If I'm in such a bad condition that it's an emergency, I'd rather not be saved anyway.

I'll go to someone else.
hahaha I mixed up so many words, i guess that's what happens when you stay up for 30 hours straight. Made some corrections.

Modesty should be respected under any circunstamces. Not that it would matter to me (because if it's an emergency it means we should let nature run its course) but that's what I think.

I don't really care, but as an older woman, my female doctor is a gift I give myself, just because we talk the same language. Our previous family doctor was a man, the son of a friend, and we liked him very much also. It is more about being comfortable and on the same wave length.

In which case I have never cared what gender the doc in the ER was. I would just be glad to still be alive.

I just seem to prefer female Primarys now after a lifetime of male Primarys.

Wait until you're disrespected by a woman doctor.

I really don't mind what gender as long as they speak English.

No one cares about the gender until the day their privacy is violated and they start to care.

I've had male doctors that I've felt really awkward with, I just didn't go to them again but didn't put me off male doctors. Of course that was just feeling awkward, no serious privacy violations, maybe I would feel differently then.
