“Sam, I don't care how many docs he has working with him/for him. My gyno is in a group with 12.
That is not unusual at all. They are factories. You get exactly 10 minutes with the doc.
Less if you need a pap smear and a pill script.
Sit down, legs up, open, swab, close, fell your belly, close, ask if you need a script and they
are gone to the next patient.
They are much more concerned with PREGNANT women. The liability is much higher.
As for telling women to pray for PMS. Next time you wrench your back, sprain your ankle,
have a migraine headache or anyother *pain* I suggest you *pray*. See how that works to relieve your pain....
His credentials are not that impressive. Many OB/GYNs have the same.
I'll never understand why women go to a man for this anyway. At least a woman has experienced
cramps, bloating, mood swings, etc. A man simply will never understand.”
Dear Friend (Ms. Teen)
My point was that he IS a usual “gyno” in many ways.
Your point about pregnant women is well taken. That is where the “action” often is for them.
They are, after all surgeons, on the surgical service if they are in a large medical complex,
not the medical side. There is often a big difference between surgery and medicine in the
“medical” community. A well trained internist is usually a good place to start when seeking
About the prayer stuff, my point is that we have nearly zero information on his stance with
this issue. I have not read his book (s) and no one who has read them has posted here. We
simply have far too little evidence to comment intelligently on the man's qualifications.
As for going to male vs. female docs, that is another issue, separate from the topic of this
thread. If you care to start such a thread, I’ll be pleased to comment. I see several physicians,
some of whom are ladies! Hint, there are both good and bad docs among both genders, IMO.
