The worst appointment I have ever had. Refused to believe that I knew about my condition that I've dealt with for 8+ years, talked down to me, brought in a male student for my extremely personal exam without asking if I was okay with it, and was overall extremely rude to me. He told me that my previous doctors had been irresponsible and that I had been as well. He also expected me to be able to pay out of pocket for an expensive procedure because I had told him that my insurance wouldn't cover it and had told him that I hadn't been able to pay for the small amount of preventive care I had been doing had to stop because I couldn't afford it either because of unemployment. He was the most rude and inconsiderate doctor that I have ever met in my life and I will actively warn people against seeing him.
