Dr. Wennlund was comforting and listened to me. She was able to provide alternatives to my treatment and I would recommend her to anyone.

Surprisingly, shockingly terrible experience

Instead of hearing me, and demonstrating at least some empathy for my concern, Dr. Wennlund instead chose to dissect my medical history line by line, as though I were a child in need corrective action, to illustrate that I could not be more wrong. It was as though my medical history just happened yesterday and I had no idea about it. She even went so far as search - in my presence - for medical evidence to counter the experience I knew I was having with my own body. I was then given the statistics to further clarify how wrong I was: If it's not been studied, it can't be happening. I still feel disgusted and ashamed to be me. To be clear, no physician has to agree with a patient's self-diagnosis or proposed solution. A physician does however have to exhibit some kindness and sensitivity, particularly when discussing a topic as personal as sexual health. Dr. Wennlund did neither. Once satisfied that she'd done enough, she simply said, "I'm sorry. I can't help you," then left the room, wordlessly. No patient should be treated like I was.
