Dr. Smith was the on call doctor for the weekend. My daughter, who is a college student, was experiencing strep-like symptoms so she called the practice. Dr. Smith, who is not a doctor with the practice, answered. She was rude to my daughter and questioned why a 20-year-old was calling a pediatrician. When I called back to speak to her, at the end of our conversation, she condescendingly told me I need to teach my emerging adult how to handle medical phone calls and difficult conversations. Her demeanor was neither kind nor compassionate. Her medical advice was to go to the Minute Clinic to be tested for strep. 48 hours later, my daughter is still ill and now has been diagnosed with mono. In the midst of this COVID-19 scare, shame on Dr. Smith for lacking the concern to put a worried college student at ease.
