Try not to take it personal, some docs are like that, especially specialists from what I have noticed. They will act like you are making it all up, even though your regular doc probably referred you to them. I have been treated this way & I don't have BP, so it probably had little to do with you saying that you have it, but might have had some to do with it. I went round & round with my urologist like that. He was convinced I didn't have a problem even tried to excuse away the pain I was having, then very patronizingly did some bloodwork to find that there actually was a problem, then he was singing a different tune. It's not just you, it seems like sometimes these docs just look for an excuse to get lazy.
