I think I feel annoyed that I had geared myself up for it (as you do) with a Dr I've seen for two years and now I have to go and see a different Dr just because of what she has between her legs. And now I'll have the toddler in the waiting room to entertain.

At my medical centre, I'm not sure what the official policy is, but they try hard to steer you to a female GP e.g. reminder letters state Drs XXX and YYY (both female) are available to do your pap smear on such-and-such days.
My obstetrician (male) did it at the 6 week's post birth check-up for both of my babies.
I'm trying to be responsible since we'll start TTC in the new year and this was something I needed to tick off of my list.

Gosh, that's ridiculous. What is this world coming too.
I agree. The receptionist said if i had told her what I was booking for, she would have told me. I don't like the idea of having to discuss your reason for an appointment with a receptionist unless you're bleeding.
