Actually, before you compare gender difference of male doctors vs female doctors, it is best that you know that doctors, whichever gender they belong, are highly educated and well trained to ensure that they will provide the best possible medication to their patients. Before, either of these genders, perform their responsibilities as doctors, they have attained the highest education and study the thickest books to ensure that only proper medication will be given to each patient that will seek their help. Having said that, you know that they both can perform medication and healing to those who are in need.
The question actually is not an easy question to answer or something general to respond to. There are different reasons why other may choose to get female doctors than as of the male. The reason may either be
They are female
Sure, if you are a female, what you want is to get treatment by the same gender. You are more comfortable giving them detailed information of what you feel, your experiences and the like. Being a female, giving information to your same gender is a lot more easy and comforting. You will surely have no issues discussing your situation and what you feel to doctors of your same gender. Actually, this scenario may be the same for males, who may see it more relaxed to discuss things to male doctors.
The sickness they currently in, is more sensitive to discuss with female doctors
Pregnancy, genital problems or anything of the same. This may be easier to discuss to female doctors, these conditions are highly sensitive, thus for others they may prefer to discuss it with female doctors.. Not all, but this happens most of the time.
Female doctors can be more hands and can extend themselves to more than what Science can provide
Yes, female doctors are well educated, graduated a doctorate course and went through different trainings and practical, just like their male counterpart, to ensure that patients who will reach them will get the help and medication they need correctly, but why others choose female doctors, considering that male and female doctors both have the same educational attainment? It is because female doctors are usually bubbly and sweet. Some patients may require more than scientific treatment, they want some extra care and sweetness that is almost natural to females. Although, there are some male doctors that are equally bubbly and sweet as the females, it is just that sweetness and extra care comes almost normal to females.
