My regular physician was not in but since my eye was causing me pain, I just wanted some relief from a sty. I don't usually bother seeing the doctor unless it is something that is really bothering me. When I get a sty, it can be very stubborn and even with the warm wash cloths, I usually need an antibiotic especially since eye surgery is coming up. My blood pressure was even running a tad high because of the pain. Alexander treated me like I was imagining things and did not have a sty. He did not even examine my eye thoroughly and he did not care. "Why prescribe a drug for something that does not exist"? he said. It was in the beginning stage and with the pain I was having I would need antibiotics that a couple years before my regular doctor would prescribe. Some people should not be doctors if they don't like treating some people because of their personal beliefs. It was obvious this man really disliked me and did not care. Finally two other doctors gave me the medication I needed.
