The only two dealbreakers for me would be:

Incompetency
and
An accent so thick that I can't understand what they say.

I don't care if they're tall, short, black, white, male, female, cross-dresser, transgender, have tattooes, wear (clean) combat boots, old, young, or part dalmation. If they do their job well, and I can understand them, then I would accept their care.

My OB/GYN is male and I like him. I noticed they are more "gentle" than most females ob/gyn's Ive had. lol I dont know why just something ive noticed. My primary dr was a female and I wasnt too crazy about her, I went to a dr's office that had a few dr's in there and they just signed me up to see her. She has since stopped practicing medicine so I need a new physician.

I selected "I'm a male who prefers a male doctor" but it depends on what I'm doing there. For something involving genitals, then I prefer a male doctor. If I'm there for anything not genital related, it doesn't matter. It isn't that I doubt a female doctor's ability to treat. In an emergency, I would have no problem with it. But for routine visits, it is just a comfort thing for me. It is awkward enough as it is without adding to it.

Going to a female doctor doesn't bother me. Went to one for 5 years till we moved. As long as she didn't laugh, I was fine.

From that moment on <> I will only choose men because women practitioners in these fields sometimes have pregnant daughters too.
I don't make the connection at all. Why pick out women to avoid? A male doctor, as father of the expectant daughter, might have taken off and left you chilling on the exam table, too. I mean, male practitioners daughters get pregnant, too, don't they?

In my limited experience...women doctors are not as professional. I had to have some personal things checked out as I age, and this one Dr was just grimacing and scowling even after the exam was done. Made me feel very uncomfortable...

There were others as well...
