I went to the doctor this morning

and she really made a point out of it how my physical issues were probably caused by mental illness, which she only knew I had because of my file, I didn't bring it up or acted all neurotic or hypochondriacal or anything.

I'm not even diagnosed with anything anxiety related. I never go to the doctor because there's very rarely anything wrong with my health. I pointed out to her I didn't feel like she was taking me very seriously because she kept mentioning I'm mentally ill even though that has absolutely nothing to do with why I went to see her. I even gave her a bunch of opportunities to just say I should come back after a couple of weeks if the issue wasn't resolved by then. But to no avail.

I thought this was especially hypocritical since she's a fat cow and looked like she could do a little cheering up herself.

Anyone else got a story about their doctor being a dick?

I very rarely go to the doctor's because I very rarely have physical ailments but when I have been I have found them less than useless.

Had one doctor many years ago who told me to stop taking my antidepressants, like instantly. I took no notice of course and I never went back to see her.

I have had DR. Be dicks, went to the emergency room and twisted my knee up and I guess nothing was torn and he said it’s fine so I asked what was the thing poking out in the middle that wasn’t there before he said looks like a normal human knee to him. Unreal, no pain meds nothing

With that said, I don’t know what the issue is but if it doesn’t go away keep going back and make an issue if it, someone will look at it again. Sometimes I think they do this just to see if it’s really an issue or if you can get through it, but for most things that you can’t fix with meds or needs surgery there really isn’t much a Dr. will do for you.
