Needs to retire

I am a patient with a complicated medical history. She came in did not even share her name and said I work two days a month and I do not have time for complicated patients. She ordered medications at high levels so high they didn't exist. When I asked her if we were going to do EKG's to montior medication interactions she said she did not know how to do so. I've heard great things about her but she seems burnt out. She also wanted to refer me to a physical therapist and that referral never happened.
