Currently, where there are group practices, a woman patient can choose to see a woman doctor where the problem is female-only (and sometimes even when it isn't).

But there are also problems that are male-only. Sometimes a male patient would feel more comfortable discussing his issue with a man because a woman — purely because of her female sex and for no other reason — would be out of touch.

This choice should be available to men.

Why is this idea important?

A same-sex doctor has an inner understanding of a patient’s problem that an opposite-sex one might well be out of touch with. So just as women have this liberty available to them so should men.
