I was diagnosed with a Pilonidal Cyst 2 days ago in the ER. The ER surgeon immediately lanced it & scheduled me an appt. with a surgeon the following day. That surgeon cleaned my wound & restuffed it with gauze & ordered that I do that everyday for the next 7 days.. I live at home with my 72 yr. old grandmother & the pain is unbearable when it comes to these cleanings. She cried & almost fainted just listening through the door.. Since I knew she would be unable to help clean my wounds I scheduled an appt. with Dr. Patel, since my prior family doctor had misdiagnosed my cyst I decided to find a new one, upon arriving to Dr. Patel's office her staff was very kind.. They understood my fears and anxiety. After 10 minutes Dr. Patel entered.. She seemed rather rude & confused as to why I was in her office. I explained what had happened and why I came to her for help cleaning my wound.. That's when she said it, "If your grandmother can't clean your wound why do you think I could?", now not only is this the rudest most inappropriate remark I've ever heard from a DOCTOR I was amazed at her audacity.. I followed with, "Well considering my grandmother has severe rheumatoid arthritis & can't bear to see me go through that pain, NOT TO MENTION YOU ARE A DOCTOR & my grandmother is NOT!" I was incredibly disgusted with her.. after she refused to clean my wound & replace my gauze I immediately got dressed. She then told me I could have the same gauze in for a week. I stormed out angry & called my surgeon. The nurse said that no matter what Dr. Patel said my gauze did need changed & if it didn't get changed daily my infection could come back or my wound would heal with the gauze under the skin.. I am just disgusted with how I was treated by this doctor & her incompetence..

Was not very sensative to specific health concerns. She generally seems to offer little information on exam findings or diagnosis found.
