My mom had her final appointment with her PCP, who's relocating to another city. He actually used to be my doc but he gave me the creeps so I quit him. He's always been respectful to my mom and has taken good care of her.
I started going into the room with every visit because of problems that she had. I noticed that he paid way too much attention to me and would say things like "are you going to give me that beautiful smile today?" and crap like that. I always brushed it off because he paid more attention to my mom once I went in with her. Friday, he went way over the line.
When he came in the room he shook my moms hand, then mine. Only he didn't let mine go, he put his other hand over it and held on forEVER. I finally had to pull away forcefully. Then he proceeded to tell me all about how he was worried about me and the drugs I was taking and how he thinks they're changing me! He said that I'm not as "perky" as normal and that he can see the change in my face. I said "it's called PAIN"!!! I was floored! A) How on earth does he know what I'm taking? He's not my doctor! and
Where does he get off counseling me on anything??? He's NOT my doctor!!! He went on about my meds, getting off of them and what I need to do. I told him that I have a team of doctors that I see and that I work with THEM in regards to my health care.
I left there feeling violated and like I needed a shower. Did he think that because he is leaving that he could get away with that? I have no idea what to do with this. This is the second doctor this year that has violated my trust and their professional ethics. That's not counting that idiot intern at the hospital either.
Then people wonder why I'm so angry....
