Board lifts ban on OB/gyns treating men Full Text  The Seattle Times, 02/03/2014

The uproar began soon after the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology posted a directive that prohibited obstetrician–gynecologists from treating male patients, except in certain circumstances. After months of protest from doctors and patients, a professional group that certifies obstetrician–gynecologists has lifted a ban it imposed in September and says its members are free to treat men. The decision, announced Thursday by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, was a reversal of its September directive. The board said Thursday that the ban on treating men is gone, as is the requirement that members devote at least 75 percent of their practice to obstetrics and gynecology. Now, the board says members must devote “a majority” of their practice to the specialty.
