Dr Oz: Male vs Female OBGYN Symptom Treatment
Dr. Suzanne Gilberg-Lenz, an OBGYN, believes women are often more comfortable seeing a female doctor because they hear a woman’s story and listen to her symptoms very different than a male doctor. She says this is because a female doctor has most likely gone through the very same thing as their female patients, especially a gynecologist. She explained male doctors look at women and PMS very differently because they are often looking for the quick fix and usually recommend birth control pills to help with the symptoms. A female doctor, however, usually knows that recommendation could actually make certain symptoms worse. Dr. Gilberg-Lenz says female doctors are more apt to pull from their own personal experiences when treating their gynecological patients since they have often lived through the very same thing as their patients.
