August 2017
She was dismissive and seemed annoyed with my concerns.

June 2017
I explained all the treatments and tests that I have done and she told me I needed to see a GI. It felt as if they thought I was dumb. I told her I had been tested for PCOS and she made me explain to her what that is....? I felt insulted, I told her I had a non existent period the month before and that was of no concern. she didn´t talk to me about one thing other than seeing a GI. I had to ask her if she would at least test the urine sample I gave for pregnancy as I had a lack of period. I feel like she had no concern for my health or wellbeing. I was very upset after leaving. I would never see this doctor again as she has no interest in my health or helping me to better my health.
