    He passed judgement on me because I am not of the same religion as him. He discriminated against me. I had a full blown panic attack in his office. He is the worst medical professional that I have ever been seen by.
    I would never "pass judgement" on someone for any reason. I wish this person had spoken to me in person so that I could have had a chance to discover what was said or done at this appointment for what was obviously not a good experience for him or her.
