So, I had gone to the doctor yesterday to see about my ear aches. My earaches are nothing new. Ive had tubes put in 4 times when I was little and still having problems with them. I had to goto a new doctor because my doctor was booked, naturally. I could tell as soon as he walked in I wasn't gonna like him. No smile, no introduction. He looked in my ears and told me they looked horrible. He gave me 2 eardrops, penecillin, and told me to take some over the counter antihistimine and decongestant. I had told him I was breastfeeding. He was concerned about the over the counter medicine and breastfeeding. In my head I was thinking no matter what he tells me I was gonna call my peditrician afterwards and ask her opinion on the meds. He said so you've been breastfeeding straight for 6 months?????? Do you pump??? I said no. He laughed and said do you have a pump????I said I did but I got rid of it cause I never used it. He looked at me and said well how long did you plan on breastfeeding then???? I told him my thoughts were to let her wean herself. He came back with "so, were talking she's in Kindergarden and you're over there lifting up your shirt????" I should have told him that just wasn't acceptable. I couldn't beleleive it. What's wrong with these doctors not realizing that breastmilk is best?????? If he only knew how important it was to me and not just a cheap and easy way to feed my baby. Well, it's safe to say I will never be seeing him again.

Jun. 3, 2008 at 6:40 PM I had a labor law enforcement attorney inform me one time that it is not against the law to be an ass. I would send the " good doc " a non-thank you letter informing him of the same, I'd send his staff all a copy as well. You might as well, you won't ever be seeing him again. Men like that don't change, you might as well get down on his level for any satisfaction. I would do it in a heartbeat. I'd send a copy of this post with it & inform him that he is a complete ass !!!

Jun. 3, 2008 at 7:10 PM Wow.  What a horrible man!  I guess he would've refused to see me, since we're still nursing and my son is two!  What medical school do these idiots graduate from???
