The Question Club
I'm kind of uncomfortable with my current doctor. She was referred to me by my normal doctor, as an actual gynecologist (I had weird cells, wanted to fix it). However, I don't really like her. She works at a really busy OB-GYN office, seems to be more OB than GYN, and I always feel rushed and not-paid-attention-to when I'm there. She does the PAPs really quick, which is awesome, but I don't feel like she really cares about my concerns and stuff. I asked her about the HPV vaccine that came out a while ago, and she pretty much dismissed it as useful for me, as I've already had sex and have probabaly been exposed anyway so what's the use? She also didn't remember a pretty important thing about my current BC that I would have thought should have been written in my file, but I guess wasn't. And I'm Little Miss Research, I do my homework, I know my body, I keep up with research, I actually know exactly how BC pills work, and I mean, I found the pill that worked for me based on the levels and kinds of progestins. I don't like my contributions dismissed, I want to have control over what happens in my body.|
So my basic question is, how do I go about changing my doctor? How do I find a new one? How do I leave the one I have?
Thanks a bunch. Merry Christmas!
