Is Your Doctor the Right Religion?

Or the right gender?

Or the right color?

Or does s/he have the right sexual preference?

Or any of a number of other attributes that make your doctor the right doctor for you?

Wait a minute — are these attributes relevant?

This question came to mind today after a conversation with a friend who is gay. He told me about an experience when he went for a checkup that just blew his mind…. a discussion of relevance ensued.

Read about the conversation — and then join the discussion!
