In brief: 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!
