Freedom of choice/Male or Female Dr.
Why am I ridiculed because I choose to take my "male" problems to my male family doctor? I am more comfortable with him than I would be a female doctor. Women freely choose to go to their female doctor with impunity, while I am subject to teasing. Maybe if males went to male doctors, there would be less chance of an unwanted, embarassing erection.
I hear what you're saying. It seems for some reason when it comes to men that we should just put up with anything presented to us. I prefer a male doctor especially if I had to have a "man" type exam. It just takes out the humiliation and most of the awkwardness. Customers need to speek up. If they're not comfortable with something they need to say so. Health care Providers need to start right off by asking a customer of the opposite sex if they are comfortable with them asking them questions or doing the exam on them. Some Providers think that just because they have some letters after their name that you should be good with anything.
Here -- Here. I completely agree!! I have never had
a female doctor, because that is my choice, and they can take it or leave it. Most men don't think that they have a choice when a female doctor walks into the room.
Customers just don't speek up. I hear some guys saying how exciting it is to have a guy type exam with two nurses in the room. I just don't get what is so exciting about it especially when you're The only one naked
I know -- I don't get it either, especially when you know that they are probably making non-verbal judgments about your anatomy and probably secretly enjoying it.
Some of the experiences they have written about go beyond the scope of professional boundaries -- in my opinion . . .
Agreed -- I have finally found someone who agrees with me . . . I have never been to a female doctor, never had an erection during an exam, and through all my years including 4 years in the Navy -- I have NEVER
had a doctor rub the tip of my penis to get a semen sample (as I have read in these comments). I had to have an ultrasound done on my testicle, a female technologist walked in, and I said that this will not work for me, and I wanted a male sonographer. It was fine, but I had to go to another hospital to have it done. All went well -- very professional, and I did NOT have an erection.
Smart move. It would have saved you time and money if they would have asked your preference of male or female tech at the time of the appointment or at least had both available when you got there. I mean, they knew that you were a guy coming in to have your privates checked and the tech was female and yet it didn't once occurred to them to ask. I just don't get it.
