I went to her for annual exams starting in my late teens through my early 20s. Probably around the age of 23 she gave me a short lecture during my annual exam about how I should start trying to find a partner soon if I want to have children and made references to fertility. I am sure she meant well and seems to be a kind person, but I think it was a rather inappropriate thing to tell such a young person. I switched to a different doctor after that.

My first appt. went well. She was concerned about my weight which has been a struggle due to other issues going on, but she was thorough and I didn't feel uncomfortable. My follow up appt. was the complete opposite. She only focused on my weight and was angered by it and questioned me about what I eat. I already get nervous for these appointments and I couldn't answer because I honestly couldn't think. I felt she was very rough with me and I left feeling humiliated and in pain.
