Yes this is the general direction everyone on here has taken but the OP wanted to vent her frustration and ask where she can complain
if you read her post again she also wrote "..I think this is very close to an abuse category what do you guys think?"

and she got clear answers from EF people.

Re: If you agree that I was verbally abused where do I report this doctor?

Hang on, wasn't the OP's SEVENTEEN year old daughter at the GP for an allergy / eye infection.

Give the OP a break - she was a background figure, I think the Doctor should mainly have been speaking with the daughter about an extremely minor issue, stop making out that the OP was irresponsibly standing by whilst her daughter was being told how best to deal with a combination of AIDS and Lung Cancer.

OP, only you know this, but if you were on your phone when the Doctor was addressing you directly, then yes, you were being rude, and I can understand his irritation (especially your informing him of going for a second opinion), however if you were in the background, I think you can quite happily use your phone without you being considered rude. Either way folks, she's hardly neglecting the health of her daughter, so quit the moral outrage, we're not tabloid readers here.

Do you consult 3 times in a week for an extremely minor issue?

I took my daughter to our general practitioner for her allergies second time this week.
Since she is 17 years old she is capable of answering questions that GP was asking and conversation was mainly between those two while I was quietly sitting nearby and once in a while will pop an or question when needed. Meantime I had my blackberry on a silent mode yet occasionally was checking for missed calls or emails from work since I left a little early and was expecting an email and cal from my boss.
What happens next is un-be-li-vable! I was reporting to the GP that earlier I took my daughter to an eye doctor since I assumed there was an eye infection besides just purely allergies as GP suggested and I just finished that sentence when GP shouted at me louder and louder with each word saying :’’ you are talking to me and checking your emails !!! This I will not take from you!! You are in my office and you did this last time too I cannot stand this!!! AAAA!!! We are talking about your daughter!!!!! Get out of my office and check you emails in the waiting room!!! You cannot be in here and keep checking your emails!!! You should learn if you want to be here than do not ever use your phone anymore!

So I was pretty shocked, embarrassed yet did not feel that I deserved this but I raised my eye brow and politely told him told him I wasn’t on the phone neither he was directly talking to me when I was glancing over my emails rather he was mostly ignoring me anyways.. and I told him very politely again that I am not a student in the classroom and he is not my teacher to shout at me. I also told him that he could politely asked me and I might of considered to put my phone in my bag.
We continued the remaining time discussing my daughters condition however when it was the time to leave I asked my daughter to leave the room for a few minutes since I felt that I couldn’t leave without explaining him what I thought is the right thing to do so I started with:


Me:- I think you owe me an apology you had no rights to shout at me in front of my daughter!
Him:- yes I absolutely do have the rights!!!!!
Me:- and what right is that?

Him:- you are in my office!
Me: -and? ! How do you know that I don’t have something very important to keep my eye on by checking my emails ? Besides who gave you rights to talk to me like that in front of my child? And what was that feeling of guilt that you were trying to bring in to this conversation?
Him:- (again raising voice ) you are an adult and you should know that you do not go to lawyers or doctors’ offices and check your phone constantly!!!!
Me:- and you are an adult and you know that your behavior is unprofessional, and that you do not treat anyone like this just because they are in your office!
Him:- please leave my office !!!
Me:- not only will I leave your office I will also report you!



My question is where do I report him? I will sick for another GP of course but I also think it will be a good lesson for him to learn to control himself. If he would have only politely asked me please not to use the phone I might of consider to agree with him but shouting like crazy and making me feel guilty as if I don’t care about my daughter I think this is very close to an abuse category what do you guys think?



I suspect that he got pissed of that I assumed correctly that my daughter has eye infection rather just an allergy and that I found an eye doctor without his help….Our pathetic ‘’doctor’’ even made negative comments about the eye drops that my daughter was prescribed by an eye doctor saying that it is not an antibiotic and it is old LOL he was trying to sell us stuff that did not help and each time we would leave with 7-8 different allergy pills, drops, creams, sprays etc.,
Since you asked, I think you are a 24K prat.

(Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) He obviously (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) thinks you were (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) rude and wasting his time (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry). He probably won't mind (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) if you change GPs and frankly (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) no one cares that he failed (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) to acknowledge your overall (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) superiority to him, despite (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) he several years in (Wait - gotta look at my Blackberry) medical school.

And let's face it, looking at your dam* Blackberry while talking to him says a) "You're not important enough for me to take my eyes of my toy." and b) You are a jerk.

In my defense people, please understand that he was upset that I was right about my daughter having an eye infection rather than just an allergy as he diagnosed her.
He mainly was taking to my daughter and wouldn’t even look at me when I speak up! It wasn’t as if he was talking to me and I was on my mobile. I think he gets paid or rebated when he refers patients to other doctors and he got his commissions cut off J
I think you people are sick thinking that you should take this kind of behavior from anyone..
And frankly, this response confirms my earlier assessment. A number of people basically said 'Your bad' and your ego refuses to accept even that.

So everyone else needs an attitude and you're right? Wow.

Brass427

I am sure you could pass your message without being rude to the OP. That was harsh indeed... and completely out of line. Really.

Re: If you agree that I was verbally abused where do I report this doctor?

The OP was rude to the doctor. The doctor was rude to the OP. Most people seem to think that nothing would be by the OP reporting the doctor to anyone. I believe the link is in the thread if the OP wants to take the matter further.

The sun is shining outside. This Thread is closed.
