@NightNerd You made the choice to see a male OBGYN, but you could of chose a female OBGYN if you wanted. I bet that you will never have a male doctor and male nurse/pa alone with you during an exam, but a male patient has a female doctor/np and female nurse/pa which is unequal treatment.
The problem for a male is for someone like my dad who choose a very good urologist who is a man. After arriving to his office he is ambushed with an entire office staff of all females. He asked if they had a male nurse, PA, etc. and received a giggle and comment, "we are all females." Why do urology practices with predominantly male patients only have female nurses? Hire at least one male nurse and a male assistant for your patients. This is the reason I can not get my dad to go get checked. Nowadays, women have the option of going to an all-female OB/GYN practice; men should also have this option.
Both men & women have had dignity issues with our healthcare industry. Because the administrative staff in many places is all female, they listened somewhat to women and adjusted better protect to their privacy and dignity. For the most part the industry is still tone deaf to male requests.
Many female nurses/techs only want a female GYN doctor, mammographers, sonographers for vaginal ultrasound, and a female nurse when she needs a urinal catheter but when the roles are reversed the same nurse/tech will tell male patients that they are professionals and it is OK for them to provide intimate care to men by putting in a catheter, scrotum sonogram, exams, etc.
“Many of us have experienced the 'ambush,' where that trust is broken, when the female doctor brings in another female chaperone to be in the exam and sees 'everything' without asking the man whether the presence of another female would be acceptable," - https://www.athenahealth.com/knowledge-hub/patient-experience/chaperones-exam-room-—-who-gets-decide
