A doctor who specializes in family care can check for a broad range of different illnesses and conditions, including those that uniquely affect women, such as various reproductive or hormonal disorders. Some of the conditions family care doctors check for are:
• Abnormal vaginal bleeding and discharge
• UTIs and Bladder infections
• Gastrointestinal Treatment
• Diabetes Management
• Eye and ear infections
• Allergic reactions
• Geriatric care
• And others
It is common for women to prefer medical services from female doctors. However, this is not always the case. A recent 2018 survey of over 7000 Americans estimated that nearly half (46 percent) of all women in the United States prefer to receive medical care from a female doctor. The other responses in the survey were either ‘no preference’ or male doctors. Furthermore, younger women are also more likely to prefer a female doctor than older women, who often do not have any preference.
While male and female family care doctors can provide excellent medical services to patients, there can be several advantages to having a female family care doctor. Various studies have shown that a female family care doctor is more likely to listen longer and more attentively to their patient’s medical concerns.
One particular study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) of the United States of America surveyed over 500,000 patients with heart conditions admitted into emergency rooms over two decades and found that mortality rates for both men and women were significantly lower when a female doctor treated them. The survey also found that women treated by male doctors had the highest mortality rates of those surveyed.
Moreover, if you are a woman, a female family care doctor will likely be able to sympathize with concerns you have that are unique to your sex more effectively than a male primary care physician.
At Mercy Medical Center, our family care doctor specializes in and treats a wide variety of conditions including allergies, asthma management, depression, eye infections, UTIs, bladder infections, diabetes, and many more.
