Gender of Patient Can Honor Modesty For: Female

How This Doctor Accommodated Patient Modesty Requests: She performed hysterectomy on one female patient and accommodated her wishes for an all-female team and only spinal anesthesia so she could be awake for surgery. She also accommodated the patient's request that her husband be present for the surgery.


I am a woman from Minnesota who needed a hysterectomy, but I did not want to be put under general anesthesia and I wanted to have a 100 percent guarantee that I would have an all-female team for my surgery and that my husband could be present for my surgery. I was upset when my first female gynecologist said those wishes could not be accommodated. I decided to leave this gynecologist and look somewhere else. My husband found Medical Patient Modesty’s web site after I decided to walk out of first doctor’s office and it gave us the positive motivation to look for the right doctor. My husband kept researching doctors, found one he was sure was a good Doctor, Dr.Carol Uhlman in Staples, MN and called for me. On first meeting I actually felt comfortable with her. She was so confident, and answered everything in straight-forward, frank terms. She guaranteed me an all-female staff. After consulting with hospital management and anesthesia, they agreed to allow my husband into the OR. I was also told that just spinal would be okay. The staff respected my wishes. I was allowed to keep my gown on. They covered the windows and no males other than my husband were allowed in. I would never have gone through with the operation if it were not for finding this one remarkable doctor who had both compassion and was a master of the healing arts. She didn`t put me through unnecessary exams.
