As a healthcare provider, attitudes like the ones presented by your doctor really grind my gears. Modern healthcare is team based, with the nurse/doctor/physiotherapist/whatever working together WITH the patient to determine what their concerns are and how best to address their needs. That includes LISTENING TO THE PATIENT.

I work in the Canadian system, which is very different from the US. I really feel for your healthcare insurance situation. Does your HMO not permit you to choose a new physician? I am not too familiar with the managed care system. I just know in Canada you can go to whatever doctor you want, provided they are taking new patients.

This is why I honestly want to have a midwife as my primary care physician. They go through training just like anyone else and they’re more equipped to deal with treating women and children because they’ve gone through it themselves. After watching all the problems my mom had I really don’t want to have to deal with it. The only problem is that I don’t know where to find one around here. That and FI’s not exactly excited about the idea because he knows that I don’t want to be drugged up when I give birth to our child when we decide to have one.
