KA-Marca-W- THMMGA new trend has developed regarding female patient preferences by the time they have to select the gender of their ObGyn. This trend indicates that women between the ages of 18-28, pre childbirth, are gravitating more towards a female ObGyn. Studies have also shown this new age progression is due to a mutual understanding of their current needs and a large increase in comfort. “Obstetrics and gynecology deal with the most  personal and private parts  of the female body,  it is important to find a specialist that you feel comfortable with. Most of my patients claim that they feel more open to talk about  their personal health concerns.” – Affirms Dr. Ileana Perez from  ELITE OB/Gyn  of Miami. “Most of my patients belong to a younger generation and they know  that they have the opportunity to choose the gender  of their specialists” – Continues D. Perez.

Studies, from the American Journal of Medicine found that on average, they spend more time with patients, and were more likely to make sure they understand what patients are saying through paraphrasing. “Having built a successful practice, on the merits of being a compassionate and a skilled physician, and not simply by being  a male provider, I dedicate time with  each patient.” Says Dr. Guillermo Lievano. “Whether male or female, let’s share in great communication with our patients and create a personalized experience that meets all their needs.”– Explains Dr. Lievano. This shows that there are several benefits to choosing a male and female gynecologist. There is definitely more than one way to look for an ObGyn depending on what you need. It’s important to be honest with yourself in what you expect of your doctor and what you are comfortable with, so that you can find a good match.
