I so wish I had gotten a recommendation before I went to this doctor

Very rarely do I ever write reviews, especially negative ones. But I had such an awful experience with this doctor that I feel it’s my responsibility to let other people know they should probably avoid him. I made a visit to this doctor after 4 months of having a rash, and he was the first doctor I visited about the condition. The reason why I waited so long to visit a doctor is that my sister broke out with the same rash 1.5 years before—and my sister is 1.5 years older than me. Since she was diagnosed with dyshidrotic eczema, I just assumed I had the same thing. Especially since this stuff typically appears in your 20’s, which both of us are. Doctors really can’t do much for eczemas, so I just continued trying to find the things that make it better or worse to try to cope with it. The condition was getting so bad all over my body, however, and one night I finally reached a breaking point from waking up multiple times feeling on fire with itching. So I thought I would strip away everything in my diet that people are commonly allergic to. The next night, I did some more research, just because I began to doubt that I had exactly what my sister had. The main reason I began to reconsider was that everything I read about dyshidrotic eczema said it appears on the hands and feet. I had the exact same rash as my sister and how the D.E. is described on my hands and feet—but I had it on the rest of my body. I clarified with my sister and she indeed only had the rash on her hands and feet. I found a very similar condition that is supposed to be related to gluten, and the rash could appear anywhere on the body. On the night that was the breaking point, I had a pizza and two beers for dinner. That’s a gluten-rich meal. The next night, after I had gone over a day without any gluten, was the best night I had since I developed the rash—I didn’t wake up one time. So since I now thought that I have something related but distinct from what my sister has, I thought I did need to definitely visit a doctor. I had already been gluten-free for a couple of weeks or so and while I was still definitely suffering from it, the condition was steadily improving. So I go to the doctor knowing on the front end that I’m going to seem like one of those patients who has self-diagnosed and knows everything because I have the internet, but I can’t help that with the way things worked out, I do have a long story to share about what’s been happening and what I think may be some clues to what is wrong. I wasn’t aiming to be argumentative, to prove I’m right, or anything. But I couldn’t go to the doctor and just not share all of this, right? From the moment I started to say ANYthing about all this, this doctor made clear he wasn’t interested in hearing anything at all from me. He was dismissive, cocky, and obsessed with being in absolute control. He interrupted me, raised his voice at me to cut me off, talked over me, and wouldn’t answer my questions unless I pressed him directly. It was very, very unpleasant. To keep an already long review as short as I can, I’ll spare most of the details of the appointment. Although I could tell he had some reservations about this, he diagnosed me with scabies. He asked several times to make sure nobody I knew was itching (they weren’t, except my sister—who had been told she had scabies when she first broke out with the rash), but didn’t want to listen to anything about my sister and the eczema. One of the times he was raising his voice over me, he said “Forget about the eczema!!” After he gave me the prescription for scabies treatment, and just before he shut the door on the way out, he said, “And stop looking stuff up on the internet.” I found him on the internet, so in that way this was the only thing coming close to good advice during my whole visit. But I can’t imagine the audacity of a doctor to act this way—it’s not his concern at all what I do to try to learn more about what the problem could be and he was completely out of line in telling me that. Some weeks later, I happened to be talking about my experience with someone else some weeks later, and they said the name sounded familiar. They suddenly remembered they had an appointment with him years before. He came in, looked at the part of skin to deal with, and issued care without any questions or anything. He was not caring, not wanting to help, not wanting to be a real doctor. If these two visits years apart from each other are any indication, this man has no business having a job in which personal interaction is so vital. For some reason, he was so threatened by someone who had some ideas about what the diagnosis might be. He had no reason to be so defensive with me—I’m just a person who knew what was happening with my body over the past four months, and I needed to be heard. That’s all. I ripped up this doctor’s prescription for scabies treatment, and I have ended up going to another dermatologist who actually listens to me and wasn’t offended that I already had things to say about my condition. But she also said scabies is the most likely thing. Well, after two tests, two different treatments, and a biopsy, it’s looking like I do not have scabies, after all. I have had no problem with going through treatments for something I didn’t think I had, but I would do it only with a doctor that listened to me. I understand how stressed and tired and vulnerable you are when you go the doctor for a skin condition. f you have any questions or thoughts about your condition, if you want to be heard, if you want to get at the truth, if you want a doctor that really wants to help you, do NOT go to this one.
