I was terrified to have a male doctor because of very servers complex ptsd due to childhood trauma at the hands of a male relative. After the appointment, I felt 150% comfortable with the doctor and scheduling follow up care with him directly, despite it being a very long drive from my home to his office. His bedside manner is off the charts! He took his time and addressed every concern I had, professionally and was very friendly to converse with about my concerns too.
