What are your thoughts on Dr. Wong’s methods for examining and treating women? How important would it have been for women to have access to a female physician?
Just the fact that male doctors didn’t touch their patients or talk to them directly was more than my mind could fully process!
As a female physician I was 100% horrified at the way medicine was practiced esp by Dr Wong. The women had a much better grasp of how the body works, what prevents infection, how to heal than he did. He deserved what he got in the end for sure.
