is it weird or inappropriate for a 28 year old male to have a female physician as their pcp? looking for a new doc and she seems good. but concerned?

No: A trained ethical physician treats patient within his clinical practice with professional courtesy irrespective of their gender, financial status or race. But if you are uncomfortable or develop a sexual interest in her, it will be to your health benefit to seek another physician.

FEMALE PHYSICIANS: Most female physicians are as competent and as well trained as male physicians and they are capable of treating both men and women.If you feel comfortable and like your female doctor professionally i will say there is no reason to be concerned
i trust both male and female physocians for me and my family.
