FIND A WOMAN DOCTOR:

When Harvard researchers in 2016 analyzed Medicare records documenting more than 1.5 million hospitalizations over four yearas, they found that patients who received care from a female physician were more likely to survive and less likely to be readmitted to the hospital within 30 days of discharge. In face, about 32,000 fewer people would died each year "if male physicians achieved the same outcomes as female physicians," the researchers said. Previous studies have suggested that female doctors are more likely to follow clinical guidelines and are more effective communicators.
