Is it okay to request a female doctor?
Absolutely, it is! Some patients just prefer same-sex doctors, while others are just more comfortable with male or female doctors for themselves and their family. Regardless, it’s just fine to request a male or female doctor. If you’re concerned about sounding sexist, don’t be, as the request is quite common and expected by many doctors. If you’re wondering how to request for a doctor of a particular sex, just mention that you’d be most comfortable with a male/female doctor.
Here at Viva Health Centre, we have female doctors you can see. Since we’re a walk-in clinic, you can come see us just about whenever you want to, but keep in mind that one of our female doctors may not be available for a walk-in appointment. It may be better to book an appointment with us instead. You can also book a meet-and-greet with us if you’d like to see a doctor on an ongoing basis.
How can a female doctor help me?
If you’re a male and concerned about how a female doctor can help you, don’t be concerned, as doctors of either sex are fully capable of helping patients of the opposite sex.
