Description

Several years ago, when I had a painful cyst on my ovary, my family doctor referred me to an OB/GYN. He is not the physician I would have chosen. I prefer female doctors, but I was anxious to get care quickly, and the physician seemed knowledgeable and willing to discuss options with me, so I stuck with him for future yearly exams. I did not want to seem sexist by insisting on a female physician.
