Doctors not accepting Medicare

I became eligible for Medicare last year, and went for my yearly gynecology appointment. I was told that my gynecologist of 30 years does not accept Medicare. I was shocked & devastated. I have no gynecologist now, because the only ones that accept Medicare are men, and I don’t like men for that type of medicine. I would like to see a single payer healthcare system set up with prices that are standardized & payments to the doctors that are fair, so that situations like this do not happen.
