I've always chosen women doctors, even for Noah. I just feel more comfortable with them and given the option I chose a female. I'm learning this isn't always the best way to go. Today really opened my eyes to a great doctor I was missing out on just because he was male and when we found the practice we chose the female doctor. 

Noah has been sick for almost a week. Last week we saw his regular doctor and were sent home with an, "It's probably just a virus."

We went back today to find out that he has strep. At our first appointment the strep had probably just started and wasn't picked up on the test. At this appointment we saw one of the male doctors in the practice because Noah's doctor had the day off. 

From the moment he walked in the door I was wowed. He was nice. He was funny. Noah loved him! He took his time with us. There was no rushing. He explained everything to me which i just loved. I am a big detail person so the more information you give me the happier I am. We are definitely switching to him as Noah's primary doctor. With Noah's other doctor the appointment always felt rushed and I left the office with unanswered questions. 

Never again will I choose a doctor based on the fact that she is a woman.


  1. We have always had male doctors for the kids...I don't know why, but it's just happened that way. We've had good and bad experiences, but their current doctor is GREAT because he explains everything in ways we can understand. I never knew how ear infections happened until he explained it in terms that a non-doctor could understand. It was so helpful! I'm glad that you got some answers with Noah and I hope he feels better soon!

  2. If it is for myself Im with you I feel more comfortable with a woman, than a man. Thats just because I dont want a man looking at my lady things and enjoying it lol. I know its their job but that doesnt stop them from taking in the scenery :D But with kids I think either sex would do a great job. Hope the little one gets better soon x
