      While each doctor may be unique, there are common traits that most patients look for in their physician. Here are eight of the most important physician traits: 1. Communication. Communication is an important part of any clinical practice. The job of a physician requires great communication skills especially when it comes to speaking and listening. The researchers then concluded that, compared with male physicians, female physicians are more likely to practice evidence-based medicine, perform as well or better on standardized examinations, and provide more patient-centered ts of female primary care physicians also experience fewer emergency department visits compared with.

        Seeing an MD of the opposite sex I don’t think would be that weird or traumatic an experience for anyone. What turns the visit into a nightmare for the patient is when and MD brings in a chaperone or a scribe, who is not the same sex as the patien.   Obese men who had male physicians were more likely to receive diet, nutrition and exercise counseling than obese women who saw female doctors and opposite gender patient-doctor pairs. These conclusions were drawn from analysis of post-visit data from nearly 6, obese patients and their doctors.
