I'm almost 38 weeks pregnant. I have had issues with a doctor in the practice I go to. I can't just change practices, because it's the only one for my hospital. The other hospital is too far away. I have to see every doctor in the practice, and he's the only one I have a problem with.
My appointment with him, he freaked out when I gained 6lbs in 4 weeks. I have a history of an eating disorder, and all he could talk about the whole appointment was how I was going to be 200lbs when I have the baby. He didn't even notice that I had dropped 10 pounds at the beginning of my 2nd trimester.
He put me on a diet... I lost weight, and my other doctor was upset over that.
I call the office about bleeding I had yesterday, It was bright red, and I just wanted to make sure it was okay. He tells me to lead to L&D to be monitored after I tell him I am having slight contractions.
When he comes to check on me, he says I was FAKING it on the phone.. I never said anything about thinking I was in labor, and I knew if I was, it was early labor. He was extremely rude, and belittled me in front of the nurse.
I decided I'm filing a complaint this time. The hospital isn't any help, they just tell me I didn't call the right department, and don't give me the right number.
I found a form I can fill out for the NYS Department of Health to file a complaint, but is that taking it too far?
