Giving up control

Susan Bewley's article is like a breath of fresh air. A physician re
-thinking what has been taught and accepted in medical school. No matter
how "pro-woman" we think we are there is always more to learn on this
subject. I will start handing the speculum over to the woman from now on.
Thanks for sharing this, Dr. Bewley.
