Several studies have focused on the relative importance
patients place on various factors when selecting healthcare
providers. Hopkins et al. first reported that women
preferred to see a female family physician if one was
available.1 Several other early studies confirmed this
finding.2–6 Other investigators, however, found the
gender of the physician to be among the least important
factors in physician selection.7 Schmittdiel et al.
reported that female patients who chose female physicians
were the least satisfied when patient satisfaction
was assessed.
