I still hate her

My visit with Dr. Insensitive went almost exactly like I thought it would, aside from a couple of surprises that weren't exactly pleasant. We spent about 15 minutes talking about how long I've been on AF, how heavy and light it gets and about our IF history. Apparently she didn't read my chart because she was clueless about me and our diagnoses. I told her we were headed to IVF and had canceled a cycle this past Summer due to financial issues. She then tells me she's prescribing me Prom.etrium and that I might get pregnant on it.

I wanted to hop off the exam table and punch her but was afraid I would trip thanks to the damn stirrups. Instead I laughed at her and told her how very unlikely that was seeing how SHE was the one who first told us about C's zero SA. She didn't even have the decency to look sorry and just breezed over my comment to tell me she was also prescribing me metformin, but only 1000mg because she doesn't agree that 2000mg is ideal for insulin resistant PCOS.

She then performed an examination and acted surprised that I was still bleeding, despite our conversation about that not even 5 minutes before. I was so embarrassed and just wanted to melt into the table and disappear. She didn't order any bloodwork or answer my questions about the cause of my 4 month long AF. She acted like it was a normal visit and did my pap and sent me off.

It's official that she is the worst doctor, ever. I'm taking my Prom.etrium and making an appointment with my RE, just not sure which one. I'm also really never setting foot back in Dr. Insensitive's office...unless it's to kick her ass.

I've also come down with a horrible head cold, such is my luck.


  1. omg..what a B*tch!!
    Please please don't ever go there again.
    So awful, I'm sorry you had to deal with her.

  2. Is there any way you can file a complaint against her? How insensitive to make a comment like that. I wish you would have punched her! :) ((hugs))

  3. Get the hell away from her and don't look back. I did the same with a complete jerk for a doctor, and I'm so glad I did. I'm sorry you had to deal with that kind of (mis)treatment.
