in Stockton, CA |
she didn't seem to really listen to me. She said, because she was unfamiliar with my symptoms, and they were not typical of what she had seen for my particular illness, that she didn't think it was what I was diagnosed with years ago , and that other Doctors apparently, misinformed me with what they had told me was so. She was condescending, and actually insinuated that it could all be psychosomatic. Wow!!! really!! Like I would want to live like this for 16 years!!!!!

Dr. Shale seems to feel vastly superior to me (and I assume the rest of her patients). She also seems to feel no need to offer explanations for worrying symptoms.
