Provider *Janet Dwight forgot to send prescription then sent wrong one, then after getting correct prescription call two weeks later re: lab results & re-sent prescriptions for getting that she's already sent it weeks before. Seemed scattered & forgetful.

i was told by the doctor that my test results would be done and prescription sent to my pharmacy by end of day on the day i was seen. i did not get my test results until 4 days later, despite the fact that i called and was told the following day someone would call me (and they didn't) i called the day after that and was told someone would call (they did) and told me my test results and the doctor would call by end of day. the doctor never called. i called back later that day where i was told my test results would be in that day. i was reassured they would be in that day (day 3). it wasn't until day 4 that i was officially given my test results. in the mean time, my infection got worse and has now started bleeding. extremely dissatisfied.

I have seen Jan Dwight annually for many years (10+?). My weight has been a yearly point of gentle discussion e.g., the usual "I'd like to see your weight down next year" and talk of exercise and Weight Watchers. As a life-long dieter and struggler with weight, these discussions were not surprising as I agreed my body was wrong and needed fixing. Even though Jan was kind, the embarrassment and sadness I would feel was to be expected as I clearly needed to "lose weight". About 2 years ago I started exploring Intuitive Eating and Health at Every Size which has resulting in a dramatic paradigm shift in my thinking. As a result, for the first time I said "no" to being weighed at my annual with Jan in late 2017, and I don't recall there being any discussion about it. This visit however was quite different. Jan said "we need to get your weight", when I asked why she said something about it being important to track. We went back and forth a bit with me saying no and she insisting it was very important. I finely relented and said "OK, you can weigh me but I don't want to know the number because it is a trigger for me". She stared at me for quite a while, then said "How about we agree to weigh you next year?". I agreed but knew no way was that ever happening. As I left the appointment I was quite shook up. I felt bullied and shamed. Jan never once inquired about my eating or exercise habits. Nor was she at all curious about why I did not want to be weighed. It occurred to me later that the reason she did not accept my compromise of taking my weight and not telling me the number was that she didn't want the data point for tracking purposes. She wanted my weight to use it as a hammer to shock and shame me. I am a well-educated, well-spoken woman who has literally been cared for at VM since birth. I have never had a serious illness and overall am quite healthy. None of this was taken into account. I was not given any credit for my good self-care because Jan was working purely on assumptions and on a very old and tired way of thinking about weight and how it relates to health. This was my last visit to Jan, and in the future my healthcare needs will be fulfilled elsewhere as much as possible.
