I have a disease and have been being treated by a specialist. I was on Medicaid, I lost my insurance and now have no insurance. My income is *just* a nitch above Medicaid guidelines. I have Medicare but it won't kick in until October.
My specialist has seen me for free for the last 3 times I was a patient. I was so very grateful as that is unheard of.
However, his bedside manner sucks. He hands me a bag of inhalers, medicines, *assumes* because I was on the inhaler, I don't know let's say ten years ago (according to medical records he has of mine), that I know how to use the inhaler and when I ask he has bad bedside manner! My boyfriend even said the dr. treated me like an a$$hole but he can't be that bad for seeing me for nothing, I'm very grateful to him but I'm not happy with him. I'd rather pay and have offered him money as well to be seen by a doctor who has nice bedside manner.
I want to switch doctor's to another practice without offending him which I know I will be. Help.

It's your health that is paramount here. Don't worry about offending him, you need to see a doctor that you like and feel comfortable with. Good Luck
