When getting a yearly physical exam is it better to have a male dr perform the exam & female dr for a female? What exam is needed when your 45 male?

When getting a yearly physical exam is it better to have a male dr perform the exam & female dr for a female? What exam is needed when your 45 male?

Doesn't matter: The gender of the physician and patient do not have to be matched to have a quality annual exam. If pub feel more comfortable with one over another, that's ok, and you can choose your doctor accordingly. Best to keep the same doctor over the years and develop a good relationship. Hope this helps! ...Read more

It is time: You have a medical problem that requires an examination. You need this examination to get better. You are 46 years old. It is time to be an adult and have your exam. If you think for one moment that the doctor, male or female, will have any inappropriate thoughts about your skin then you are mistaken. We see skin every single day of our lives. It is skin and it must be examined. Go to the doctor! ...Read more
