Doctors

Need to choose a doctor or dentist? Opt for the feminine touch.

Female medical practitioners are much more attentive and spend up to 10 percent more time with patients than male doctors.

They also make fewer mistakes. The American Medical Association found that male doctors are twice as likely to be sued for malpractice. A British government study also found that women are a fifth less likely to be investigated for misconduct.
