In this case, it should have been open and shut. I should have left years ago, but I could not. I could not waste the time to find a new doctor, I kept thinking I should give him one more chance, one more chance to change for the better. But he never did.
The major issues were:
- I was treated as if I had the plague, he stayed across the room and never came near me
- I had to remind him about health decisions he made about me in our last meeting, when he had his written notes in front of him
- I was being lectured about health care reform and how he was going to go broke, etc because of it
- and most importantly, any discussion regarding potential pregnancies was disregarded as null, since I am an unwed woman
Now that it is done, I feel relief. And excitement. About what the next doctor will be like and how that will affect my health, my life.
