By changing Drs are you wanting to pursue something with him? Because if he is on a completely different wavelength it could get very uncomfortable.

question is - what do you want?
Do you want to pursue a relationship with him?
If so, find another Dr and make your relationship with him personal rather than Dr-Patient.
If not, pull back a bit from the 'friendship' related stuff and see him as just a Dr

I am going to try and be as diplomatic as I can but I'm not ever known for tact. I'm brutally honest. Your dr should not at all be talking to you like that especially when he is a lady parts dr… It's unethical, morally wrong and just well crossing the line. I'm sorry but run forrest run… No good decent human being does that. It would really make also question why he is an OBGYN… Yukkk sorry that's my honest truth.

***Alarm bells******This is a serious minefield, as a previous poster has pointed out, your Doctor could be investigated by the medical board for having a relationship with you even if you become an 'ex patient'.
He has a duty of care and is not supposed to say those things even if he gauges your attraction for him. He really should know these rules.
My advice is for you to back off completely and get a new Doctor. I'm sure there are others who can give you excellent medical care.
If you check the Sydney Morning Herald archives there was a recent case of a female Dr getting into huge trouble for an issue very much like this.

To clarify some of theses conversations were had outside of the "dr-patient" setting. I'm probably not portraying things correctly. But he's not sleezy, he's pretty goofy actually.

Even outside of his office the Dr/patient relationship is still considered to exist. So he could still be investigated and have action taken against him by the medical board.
It is hard to portray interactions clearly in text, so he may very well not come across as sleazy in person at all. But the fact remains that he knows he shouldn't be getting personal or flirty with a patient at any time, whether in or out of the office. So at the very least, he lacks good judgement. Sorry, again don't mean to offend.
Just trying to get you to take a step back from your feelings for him, and how much of a nice goofy guy he seems, and look at the situation objectively. He's doing the wrong thing - and if you pursue it he will most likely lose his career over it.

He's your Dr. There is no 'outside the Dr-patient setting', or outside the Dr-patient relationship. OP, run, don't walk, away from this one. Any s!exual or romantic relationship would end in disaster. If you care for him, the best thing you can do for him is forget about it and find a new Dr.
