oh no he di'int

Having a horrible, poor me, kinda day. {Pitty-Party to come}
I called to make an appointment with the doc I don't like, but he has all my medical records etc. He is old and extremely old school. Chauvinistic. He makes me, as a woman, feel like he is talking down to me at all times. Needless to say, I'm not a huge fan that. So I called his office and  requested an appointment with his PA who is a female. When they tried to push me into an appointment slot with Dr. A-Hole, I spoke up and said that I would be much happier seeing a woman. (There's nothing wrong with that, right?!)
He has his receptionist call me back 20 minutes later and tells me that "HE oversees all her appointment and since I would like to see a female then I need to go ahead and find a new doctor."
I have never had something like this happen to me before and I really don't know how to take it. I feel like I was just fired from a job I never wanted. Or dumped by a bod boyfriend that I had planned on ending things with first.
Have you ever dealt with something like this before? Because it sure is a first for me!

    1. We moved here in August and I've only seen him a few times.

  2. How sad! But look at the bright side, at least it's finally over! And in all likelihood, since you are a woman, he won't even remember you, so whenever you see him in a public place you can give him dirty looks and not feel bad about it and watch as he squirms wondering what's going on. =D

  3. ugh, doctors can be the most arrogant! they despise anyone knowing anything about their own bodies, or making informed decisions. choosing a different doctor was a stab into his ego.

  4. {shake my fist in anger}
    Hope you find someone better!

  5. That's awful. I ALWAYS ask to see a female doctor just so I can avoid the one weird creepy one who is obsessed with smear tests - it's totally allowed. I hope you find a new doctor you really like.

  6. OMG, I'm so pissed for you! It's his loss and definitely a reason to find a more sensitive doctor. I'm also a fan of letting him know how you feel about his "service" as you jet.

  7. Wow. That makes me sick. I actually had an experience like this the other day. I called my doc office, my doc was a lady who talked down to me, never listened (I had UTI, she wouldn't test my urine!!), so I asked to see someone else in the office. When I said this, thinking everything would be fine, they asked me why. I said "she makes me uncomfortable", them-"well we're going to need more info then that." Ugh. I hate doctors offices and feel for you!
