I am having some issues with my pdoc. I went to see him yesterday and have been seeing him since I was twelve or so. The whole time, he barely looked at me and mostly gazed at his computer typing things as I spoke.
I was creeped out by this and felt as if he wasn’t qualified. He kept interrupting me and telling me he was ordering my meds. I kept trying to explain what was going on.
I wanted to him to take a deeper look into my condition. The last time we talked, I practically said the word “voices,” and his plan was drugs. I understand why but wish he listened to some of my symptoms.
I don’t feel like he did and feel a bit unsure about him. The appointment should’ve been around 1 hour and ended in about 40 minutes. I kept trying to tell him what was going on. He started asking really odd and out of place questions.
When I came in, I didn’t touch the door handle because the door was already open. He was all like “is there a reason why you didn’t touch the door???” I’m like, “no. The door was open.” Likewise, I was talked to like a child. I found such degrading.
He is a child pdoc, but due to shortage, I am unable to transfer as of now. I keep trying. It is hard because he has to check off on it and probably won’t.
I take Abilify and Sertraline. i do not want to gain any weight and asked him if I should expect any changes. He told me that Abilify is weight-neutral and does not cause weight gain. I almost called bullsh*t on this, because I know for a fact that it can.
Hands down, I don’t trust him. I don’t like him. Anyone switched pdocs due to similar reasons? Any similar experiences?
