Dr. Louie Dexter was rude, insulting, and generally unhelpful in trying to help me work out any course of action for my condition (congestion).
I got a lot of responses like “I already told you”, “well, I can’t read your mind”, and “how am I supposed to know”.
When I tried to ask questions (eg, about drug interactions), he kept interrupting, over & over — sometimes with vaguely related fyi’s; sometimes with “like I already told you”, without letting me even finish the question.
All of which made his subsequent complaints about “not being able to read my mind” and saying he “can’t guess what your primary care physician told you” all the more frustrating.
I got the referral to see Dr Chew, but he was out on vacation, and therefore saw Dr Louie instead.
Rather than an ENT, I probably should have been referred to an allergist (which is admittedly the fault of my primary care physician), since Dr Louie wasn’t able to help in any way at all (other than suggesting over the counter drugs that I’d already told him I’d tried).
When I asked how I’d go about finding an allergist (do I need another referral?), he basically said it’s not his problem, contact my insurance, and walked out of the room.
I guess that meant my appointment was over.
The insult to literal injury is that I paid $300 for this in-network asshat to insult me for 10 minutes.
