I feel like he doesn't ever remember my case.

Whenever I go in for an appt. (which is every 2-3 months), he can't remember what drugs I've been on or what issues I've had. I just specifically asked to not be put on prednisone again (after 3+ years of mostly being on it) and he tells me to back on it for 2 weeks. He said we needed to be aggressive in my RA treatment in Janaury but all I do is burst of prednisone and NSAIDs after failing mtx, plaquenil and humira. I always get the feeling that my case isn't that important or serious to him.

Office is fine....Dr needs to listen!

Says he read my blood reports but when asking about him he hadn't. That oversite could have killed me. This has happened more than once. He doesn't look me in the eye and doesn't act interesred in anything I say. I have to find someone that cares enough to listen and will read the blood work he orders me to take. I need a new Doctor!I have been with him 5 years : (
