So, the last 2 days I was assigned to a pediatrician who started out ok, but by the 2nd day was so extremely rude to me, I felt I was literally sitting with Satan himself. The guy also shared that he didn't feel NP's should practice in primary care. The rest of the time he belittled me, belittled parents, his staff as well, and was so rough with the pediatric patients i almost got sick watching it.
I just left at lunch the 2nd day in. I literally just told the staff I had to go pick up my son at school, and just walked out. I refuse to go back.
Emailed my instructors who said they'd try to find me another site. For that I'm grateful ...
But the whole experience was so horrific -- just a doc from a very reputable school who already had me intimidated, but then used his position to belittle me and quiz me at a very rapid pace on obscure topics, lecturing me on chemistry topics, etc -- crap that of course, we don't get in NP school -- only HE got in med school, etc, etc. I think he literally was punishing ME for all the NP's he dislikes.
Such a horrible experience ...all I can say is I do feel I did the right thing by walking out. We aren't docs, we aren't med school grads, but we're not stupid either and don't deserve to be treated that way.
There are some TERRIBLE physicians out there -- beware.
