      A recent study linked physician gender with patient outcomes, and why the benefit of receiving the treatment from female physicians is larger for female patients. Seeing a female doctor could be better for longevity, according to a new study. Previously published studies reported showed that women operated on by male surgeons are more likely to die or suffer from complications, and that women are more likely to die of a heart attack when treated my male doctors than their female counterparts. Female and male physicians practice medicine differently, and these differences have a meaningful impact on patients’ health outcomes.

      The gender of the physician has nothing to do with how the physician treats his/her patients. Knowledge, on the other hand, does make a difference. 😎

      All that matters is the knowledge not the gender,
