Being a life long vegetarian/vegan, I came to her to do my annual blood work. She is very opinionated about what's considered a healthy diet. She told me I needed to eat butter and meat. I have hereditary dry skin, and she concluded immediately that I needed to eat animal fat, all these without even asking about my family history. I asked to get my annual mammogram and fibroids checked out, never heard back from her on that. I'm not going back to her.

Comes across as minimizing your problem. When asked for a referral for an MRI and an orthopedist for my serious back pain during an office visit she appeared to be resentful of the request. She did, however, submit the 2 referrals to the insurance company. The MRI shows severe spinal stenosis in 3 areas along with moderate in 2 vertebrae. She does not seem to be taking the pain very seriously. I just requested a referral for the pain management department and have also put in to change my PCP
