Unprepared for difficult cases

I saw Dr. Almond for about two years. I have a difficult to diagnose condition. I went in with my records from the past three years of trying to find a dx. He attempted some basic bloodwork. At that point, things fell apart. His staff were so incompetent that when a specialist faxed and called 6x requesting medical record information they failed to do so. I complained that his staff's incompetence was interfering with care. He shrugged. As the case became more complex, he became more combative and unwilling to do diagnostic work. He has no comprehension of mental health issues, and even missed noting I had a mental health condition I was being treated for in our first three appts. It only registered when I told him a prescription was counterindicative for me. As more evidence appeared that the issues I had been asking about that he kept telling me were "nothing" and to live with it, he became more reluctant to do anything. Ultimately when I asked what I could do to help him see me as a person, with a body with many systems working together for health at more than a single point in time, he found it too challenging and refused to see me again. He may be great for splinters and pink eye, but avoid if you have any difficult medical conditions, things which affect mental health, or happen to be female. His is not trained or prepared for those cases.
