    • I have never been unhappy with the care – it's always been exemplarity but I have had issues with Doctor (_I wear a white coat so bow down to me_ ) attitude and have voiced there and then – I have seen on my major notes "feisty, knows too much about her own condition, will challenge every comment " which I love as it keep people on their toes.

    • Change doctors...take my business elsewhere, I am not a fan of the god complex that some doctors exhibit...I let them know I don’t feel they are listening to me and have probably copped an attitude when they get all snobby, but I feel that they are working for me and I want my monies worth...I expect common courtesy and respect...and if they can’t put me at ease and provide me with the care I am willing to pay for, then I look elsewhere.

    • 2008 was the year from hell for me as I went through many medical tests, had to change doctors, go to specialists, battle traffic to get to specialists, take my hub from his job on many a day to get me there and now finally I am in a good place, so yes, it is important to change if need be as Lola said...wish you lots of luck with this..happy

    • yes i feel i wasnt treated well when i was seeking help for spinal stenosis. i have no insurance and i just felt  like they were not interested in me since i couldnt pay thousands of dollars.

      I had a young woman who felt she knew more about my body than i myself did. I no longer go there.

      i am getting much better care at a local neighborhood clinic.

    • I’ve had several issues with docs during my health issues.  And I’m the one paying them and if they don’t listen or take me seriously that’s the last penny they’ll get from me.  I’ve had it with cookie cutter medicine.  Oooo  this is a huge pet peeve of mine.
