How happy are you dear readers with your family doctor? Because mine really sucks! Let me paint you a picture of him:
-He hates people and should have retired years ago but is clinging on for the money
-He spends no more than two minutes with you, one of those minutes he spends pushing drugs at you.
-His misdiagnosis rate is really high!
-He is cold, miserable, patronizing, very rude and has the personality of a bedpan
In the past, he has lied to me, told me he doesn’t do basic medical procedures(meaning he doesn’t “want” to do basic medical procedures) and at my last appointment definitely crossed the professional doctor/patient boundary. So basically he’s a giant jackass.
But when I’ve called other doctors in the area who advertise that they are taking new patients, I was told that they only take “orphans”. Meaning people who have no GP at all!
Which I guess is fair, but I really don’t want to be stuck with this jerk. Anybody have any recommedations? Anybody?
