Or are they immediately transferred to another doctor, even if that is their field. For instance a young woman having vaginal/pregnancy issues but one of her parents is an OBGYN.

my dad is a doctor and he says you can however, many don't as they become too emotionally attached and thats the last thing you need if you are a treating someone. He even told me he would not want to do an operation on me and would rather let someone else do it.1

A lot of my family works in the hospital. I've been treated by my father before though I guess he's not really a doctor, he doesn't exactly diagnose people, he puts casts on broken limbs (which does have a title that I've momentarily forgotten) and he put a cast on my broken arm when I was younger. I would assume that for something more serious, a doctor would be asked to step aside because of how they could quickly become emotionally compromised.0
