    I'd report him as he sounds an idiot, if not report him then at least refuse to see him again.

    Just refuse to see him again, say I would really prefer someone else and they might get the message, I am so lucky that all the docs in my surgery are very nice, there used to be one that made my skin creep but he left thank goodness, you don't need to put up with rudeness Tracye.........Marie xx

    just because you smiled I wish your
    day is full of Smiles

    Me and my family are so lucky. We have a wonderful doctor. She is more like the old type family doctor. I would have hated to sit with a rude doctor like that. Refuse to see him again. Let your own doctor know when he comes back. A doctor is meant to be understanding.
