Like most of you, I prefer to be examined by a woman doctor, especially a middle age woman or even an older woman than by a male doctor whatever is the reason of my coming even for intimate examinations, a rectal one, or even a genital examination or a prostate examination by an urologist and also for a routine physical examination. ( may be because all the physicals examinations at schools and university or for jobs were almost always performed by women doctors, so I was more used to that situation than by a male doctor )
But in France there are only a few women doctors who are urologists.
I must recognize that I had not the same opinion when I was young, I was more embarrassed to be examined by a woman doctor than a male
Also for the group exams when I was young, for instance for military service, I would have not like to be examined by a woman doctor , I believe that it was because we were naked in group and forced to obey quickly to all instructions being totally under control of non commissionners officers and doctors, it was typically a male only environment where modesty is considered as non sense and where you are a little treated like cattle, so it would have been more embarrassing in my opinion if a woman doctor had performed all or part of the physical examination, being the spectator or worse responsible of our complete obedience. Our nudity would have been felt as less normal. If the examination had been performed one by one alone in an examination room, It would have been different but we were examined in group without privacy and I did not wanted that a woman saw us in that embarrassing situation.
But now I think that the women doctors are both more thorough and more caring and taking more time to care about patients and to explain what they do, and normally they are less authoritarian even if it is not always true , some women doctors can be very authoritarian at least as much as men doctors.
But they talk generally more than a man to the patient which is better to be more comfortable.
