The doctor took all the time needed to hear out my feelings and answer any questions

Reviewed on May 26, 2022

Despite a diagnosis from another professional, this care provider downplayed the accuracy without a repeat of any previous testing that had confirmed this said diagnosis. As one with a stable mental health condition, said doctor again downplayed the previous diagnosis and stated that the previous diagnosis was due to anxiety because of mental health condition. I felt shamed and embarrassed for having mental health issues. The stigma is still there and this was the worst visit and makes me not wanting to be open and honest about all my conditions.
