Today was my third vist to a new PM clinic. First time doc said my history was too complicated and I should seek help in the big city near my home! I was surprised and dissappointed and said.." Really ?". Then he said I cold see the staff psychiatrist which I did. He was thoughtful and suggested anti-depressant and said I needed more pain meds and sent me back to the first doc.
Just got home from that appt where this doc was rude and told me I have a pill problem did I know I have a pill problem and that the shrink wasn't going to tell him what to do.
I spat out a few defensive comments like I don't doctor shop or take meds when I don't have pain and that I would not have come back except for the shrink telling me to...
Guess back to primary care for meds. Defeated upset big time.
