Sorry to hear that your appointment didn't go well. It seems like for every good doctor there are 5 other bad doctors. It takes a while to find the right one(s), but you'll find them, keep searching!
Are there any other physiatrists in your area? I forget, was it a PM or your PCP who referred you to the physiatrist. If it was your PCP, maybe you can look for a good PM & the PM might even know a good physiatrist.
Don't let this one bad appointment get you too down in the dumps. I know how disappointing & frustrating it is, but I also know that you are going to find that great doctor -- they are out there. You just need to go through the bad to find the good. I can't even begin to tell you all my stories about
all the bad doctors that I had to go through before I found the wonderful team of doctors that I have now (with the exception of one -- am trying to replace him, but its a very unusual specialty & I think I've gone through most of the others in the area & all were worse than this guy).
