This person, filling in for my regular doctor, was

1) Careless (Taking no initiative to obtain or relay results of two tests associated with a lump suspected of possible cancer)
2) Incompetent (Responding to my request for a prescription renewal by calling in the wrong drug at the wrong pharmacy)
3) Condescending ("Intervening" as if I were a drug addict when I attempted to renew a prescription for a low-dose, infrequently-used PRN drug I've been prescribed for 15 years by long-term doctors for a well-documented panic disorder)
4) Indifferent (Apparently not having bothered to read my file or learn about the medical history of the patient she was treating)
5) Rude (Refusing to apologize for her own inaction and errors, keeping me waiting for 45 minutes--dressed in a tissue-paper wrap--in a freezing office room, sullenly insisting she had returned my call, even after I showed her my phone records--with no evidence of a call from her--and responding with dismissive indifference when I told her my experience with her would result in me leaving the practice I had gone to for 10 years.)

Have never been treated this way by a health professional before. A bizarre and humiliating experience. Definitely would not recommend.
