Mine does. If you feel a doctor isn't paying attention, treat him like you would a child.....STOP him, GET his attention, MAKE him acknowledge what you're telling him, BE proactive and forceful....stomp your feet if you have to, but don't let them leave the room until you KNOW you've been heard. If that doesn't work...get a new doctor.
I had to do this with a therapist....after our "discussion" was over she actually said to me, "OH...most parents just do what we say." !!!!! I not-so-politely informed her that if she's going to do anything to my boys, she'd better be ready to explain it. I WILL question everything."
