Coming Out to Your Doctor

Do you think it’s a good idea to come out to your primary care giver?

I think it is essential unless you live a celibate life. Your doctor should be educated enough not to be homophobic.

My doctor, upon learning that I way gay, prescribed iron pills (assuming that I was anemic due to blood loss from anal sex) and added a "special handling" charge onto my invoice for my blood work.

I found another doctor.

Medicine is a business, just like anything else. Doctors are there to provide a service. Yes, let your doctor know you're lesbian or gay - definitely. He/she can help you manage your health and ensure the quality of your life.

If your doctor, is in fact, homophobic, move on. Life is way too short to people-please a medical provider who is strictly there for your needs - not the other way around...

IMHO,
