Dr. Weber explains if it is rare for female doctors to care for professional sports teams.
It’s uncommon. The tradition has been male physicians taking care of professional teams, but we’re breaking in as females and starting to take care of the professional male teams. Not uncommon for a woman to take care of a woman’s professional team, but less common for us to take care of male teams.
