I started seeing her after my OB-GYN retired. In the beginning I felt that she had a cold demeanor, which did improve. I saw her for my routine annual exam. She ordered a routine mammogram. The mammogram showed I had a breast tumor which turned out to be cancerous. I have not since heard from her - not a phone call, not a note, not a letter- zip, nada, nothing. I'm not sure how to take this silent treatment. Does it mean that I probably should start looking for another OB-GYN? I think I will.
