Oh, boy. That is a big one.

The other thing I was thinking, before I got to the paragraph about what your therapist said, is that there could be cultural communication issues but I wasn't thinking about treatment of women in particular. I was thinking about speech patterns and tone of voice, etc. and cultural differences in how doctors and patients relate to each other--expectations of how patients are supposed to look up to doctors and obey, etc.--that these are very different in the two cultures.

Either way, if you are not comfortable with a doctor, there is no reason to stay with him. Plus, what mair said about finding a pdoc that will work well with not only you, but on the same wavelength as your therapist.
