My rheumatologist is a woman. Traditionally I am slightly sexist though, and normally prefer men to be my doctors. I have no explanation for that. When I was pregnant I sighed with relief that the male doctor in the practice was on call when it came time to have my first baby even though I loved the female doctor very much. I wouldn't have been upset if she had been on call, but I definitely felt better about him delivering.


I'm sure physician choice is a very complicated matter, but it will be interesting to see how much gender plays a role in the future. For the moment I'm not considering re-training.
