Qualities to Look for When Choosing a Gynecologist


Regular gynecology appointments are an essential part of maintaining the best-possible reproductive health and wellness. One way to help take some of the anxiety of an upcoming gynecology visit is to find a gynecologist who makes you feel comfortable, informed, and at ease during your time in their office. We have outlined a few important qualities women should look for when choosing a gynecologist.

A Friendly Bedside Manner

A pleasant bedside manner is important for any doctor, but especially for a gynecologist due to the sensitive and intimate nature of your reproductive health. Topics like birth control and menopause can be distressing if you feel like your gynecologist is being rude, short, or judgmental of your situation. Look for a gynecologist who is willing to really listen to your concerns and make time for a conversation. If you feel like your gynecologist doesn’t listen or have time for you, then it’s time to find someone who does.

A Good Reputation

Seeing how past patients feel about their experience can be a great indication of the kind of care you can expect from a gynecologist. If possible, speak with your friends or family members and see if they have a specific provider they would recommend. Checking out a gynecologist’s online reputation on site’s like Google, Facebook, and Healthgrades can help provide even more clarity.

Expertise in Areas of Importance

If you have a specific reproductive health condition like endometriosis, it makes sense to seek out a gynecologist with extensive experience treating women with this condition. It’s reassuring to feel like you are in the care of an expert. While many gynecologists have a wide variety of skills and knowledge, it’s important to find someone who will be able to successfully address your most pressing concerns.

Finding the right gynecologist can take some time, so it’s important to stay patient and not rush into a decision. In the long run, you will likely be happy you did.
