A woman’s ailments may present differently to a man’s due to differences in anatomy, genetics, hormones, and physiology which often results in her symptoms being neglected or overlooked by health professionals.
This lack of knowledge or in-depth experience can result in incorrect diagnoses and delayed treatments.
Simply put, women’s health requires specialized expertise.
