Today I went to see Doctor Gillard at Winder Clinic here at JBLM. I saw her because I needed a referral to see the ENT. I thought she was professional up until she commented back to my " I like you as a doctor" to which she replied to me, "well I don't like you".
Yes that is what she said.
She was supposed to just address my issue of needing a referral to see the ENT again. She couldn't for the life of her understand why I would need another referral to see them as I was already established with them. Well I was told by ENT that I needed a new referral. She said to me that she thought it could possibly be a sinus issue causing my dizzy spell. I thought not. She examined me and found that I had no sinus issues. My ears, nose and throat were normal. I'm thinking: it would be nice if you would listen to me.
She wrote the referral but not after she told me I would need to apologize to Doctor Gillingham for asking for a second opinion and telling him that he was right when ENT can't do a thing for me while trying to conceive. I said fine that I would tell him he was right if that happens.
Doctor Gillard believes that all the ENT will do for me is to try to prescribe me maxide but won't be able to since we are in the middle of a FET. Well lets see last time I was at the ENT I couldn't take maxide either but they had a bunch of other things they could and did do for me and I ending up buying the Wii to address my balance issues like they wanted me to. Yes, the ENT suggested strongly that I buy a Wii and it did help. But it can't help when I'm having a dizzy spell.
Doctor Gillard also got all up into my face about me trying to conceive and being put on birth control. I did explain to her that it is typically done with a FET and IVF. She still didn't understand. She also wanted me off of the synthroid, though I just started it today. She looked at my thyroid tests and said I wasn't hypothyroid. Well maybe not if I wasn't trying to conceive but any of my friends and followers out there that have gone through infertility treatments will know that your TSH does not have to be a 5 to be an issue with infertility and cause for use of synthroid to get it better under control. I am following the orders of my doctors at PNW.
I would like to note that Doctor Gillard is black. I can't say she is African American because I don't know if her ancestors came from Africa or not. I'm wondering if this is an issue of race with her "well I don't like you". Maybe I appeared to be too white to her? I am a mixed race of Native American and various European races. However, she was totally unprofessional. She had an attitude with me and I refuse to take it. I do understand not having a bedside manner and was fine with that but to be treated so badly is intolerable.
I filed an ICE report as soon as I turned my computer on.
