Negative Experience

I had a negative experience with Dr. Akin. He spent a majority of time talking about his family rather than my medical concerns. During the exam he told me I am "the picture of health." Once his nurse left the room he looked at me and said "you are a little plump." I responded "Really? I am in the normal weight range for my height" (5'11" size 10). He looked up my BMI and confirmed I am within the normal weight range. I guess aesthetically he just thinks I look fat? I left feeling awful about myself. His nurse was very nice though.
