Doctor preferences

Dear vagpag,

It was brought to my attention in a recent post, that it is weird that my primary doctor/internist won't deal with my reproductive problems (excessive menstrual bleeding) and that he'd rather refer me to a gynecologist instead. He is top notch in all other aspects, and knows what he is doing when it comes to prescribing the medications and treatments that I need for my PCOS, psoriasis, and my hidradenitis suppurativa ( had a female nurse in the room whenever he examined anything that was covered by my clothing), but he won't do anything that may involve examination of the vaginal areas. Is this really that strange? Granted, I didn't mind because I would prefer a female doctor examining me for a problem like that.

Eta: I gave edited my post because I didn't realize that I had offended people with my previous wording.
