Author of Pausing With God A Journey Through Menopause By Dr. Sheri Powell
There are many women like me who prefer a female OB/GYN. My reason though it is humorous now, was not funny at first. My story began, years ago when I was a KIDS Church leader. It was time for my annual check-up and so off to the doctors I went. After completing the check-in ritual, I was shown to the examination room where I patiently waited for my doctor to come in.
A few minutes later, a male doctor pops in and stares at me like he knows me. I have this weird feeling inside my gut. “Do you work at this hospital, you look familiar?” he asked. “No”, I quickly responded and lowered my head.
I knew my regular doctor was pregnant, but her due date wasn’t for a couple of months.
I nervously asked where my doctor was. 'Due to her condition', he replied, 'she had been transferred to another unit.' I paused for a moment and then decided to go ahead with the checkup. Following the exam, we had a brief consultation, I left the hospital and never gave this encounter a second thought.
Note to self: Make sure your doctor has checked in-before you do!
