His answer was 'you were never that bright', as he closed my folder he said get long term care insurance, go on disability. Nice touch eh.
WOW ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? I think legally you are allowed to punch him in the throat after that, I'm pretty sure I heard something like that in a medical law class I took haha..... Woooooooooow no way, I just can't believe that.
But yes, as soon as I see this doctor I will let everyone know how it went because a good doctor who doesn't call you stupid is definitely worth the drive....
By the way, I think I'm going to write an article on bedside manners on my blog, so I might get back you about your idiot doctor, if you don't mind, I think it definitely earns a mention regarding how doctors and nurses need to be more sympathetic towards patients, I didn't have nearly as bad as an experience as you but I definitely think my neurologist could have taken a class or two on bedside manners. I'll keep in touch with everyone, thanks!
