I've seen a couple of doctors at Women's College hospital, and I've been impressed. I have a theory that doctors who are attuned to issues surrounding gender and medicine are more likely to listen to patients.


Do others share this belief? I can certainly relate. My doctor call his middle-aged receptionists "the girls at the desk" and has one of those freakin' I Am Julie ads in his office. GROSS.

I'm shocked that any doctor would put up such a poster---surely most people in the medical field are at least vaguely aware of the prevalence and causes of eating disorders?

I always try to see female doctors. Nothing against male doctors, aside from the fact that they don't know what it's like to be a woman. My family doctor is fanastic and when she has to refer me to a specialist, they are female 99% of the time.
