A new study finds women are more likely to survive a heart attack if they're treated by a female physician.
The analysis from Harvard is based on more than a half-million heart attack patients.
Death rates for female patients with male doctors were higher than those with female doctors.
Heart disease can impact men and women differently. Experts suspect female doctors may have a better understanding of how women react during a heart attack.
