Painful and traumatizing

Dr. Thakkar DID NOT LISTEN to me or respect what I told him about my body. He was very rough and did not stop after I told him several times that he was hurting me. I am a survivor of sexual assault and had a full blown panic attack during my exam. A few days after my appointment, I still have spotting, pain, and flashbacks.
