"I felt the doctor was tactless and rude."

Posted by Usually calm (as ),
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.
