"I felt the doctor was tactless and rude."

About: GPs in the Melbourne Ports Electoral District

(as the patient),

I just went to see a particular GP practicing at Medical One Elwood.

I have been going there for many years and generally the doctors there are polite, attentive and helpful.

I am mildly overweight.

The doctor stated the word 'obese' at least 7 or 8 times and I felt was generally tactless, obtuse and impolite when discussing my weight.

I am entirely aware of the medical terms for being a curvy person, but in my opinion they were stated coldly and without any human tact at all.

I am actually an extremely calm person by nature but I left almost in tears.
