"GP in Queensland Arrogant"

About: GP in Queensland

(as the patient),

My doctor was away, and I was convinced to see one of his colleagues. It took me many years and many practitioners to find someone who believed me and recognized my validity instead of just treating me as a foolish hysteric. This so-called colleague I felt was typical of all the old, ineffective, devaluing doctors I had previously seen. He not only told me, in front of a trainee, that I had done everything to myself, I feel he also completely invalidated my doctor, his colleague. He seemed to cherry pick my medical history, seemingly refused to listen to what was upsetting me that day, and told me I was completely wrong. I feel his attitude was completely unprofessional, unhelpful, and frankly dangerous. If I was what he said, then i believe his attitude would have sent me out in front of the first speeding truck in front of his office.
