      I went to medical school in the early 1980's. Patients would sometimes reject the senior physician if it happened to be a woman and ask for the "real doctor". Typically, a male med student with much less experience was then sent in. The senior physician was still supervising, but the patient sort of shot themselves in the foot when they did that.
