Misunderstandings come up frequently when dealing with the doctor or the doctor’s staff. The best thing to do is to be direct, but respectful. For example, if the doctor was being short with you and hurrying during the visit, and it led to hurt feelings. Say something along the lines of, “I know you have had a long day and have been busy, but I feel frustrated when the appointment is rushed.” Being honest is better than avoiding the doctor’s office, and working out the problem will be more beneficial. If circumstances do not improve, there is the option of looking for a new doctor.
