This doctor outrageously told me that feeling depressed was 'part of being a woman'. She also refused me hormone tests when I felt like something was very wrong with my body after coming of hormonal birth control. She actually told me that there was no such test- I have no idea why. I sought a second opinion and another doctor ordered blood tests. Lo and behold I was diagnosed with PCOS, showing high levels of androgens and confirmed by a scan. Several years later, I have also been diagnosed with endometriosis. Trust your own instincts if you feel something is not right, and do not let this doctor make you feel small. Looking back, I am appalled that I did not complain at the time- Dr Weil should be ashamed of her behaviour which could prevent people from seeking the right help.
Rather condescending and dismissive when I sought help with an ongoing mental health. I was patronized and made to feel like a problem.
Need to insist on treatment investigation. Felt I was being a nuisance for asking questions re my condition. Felt a number rather than someone who hardly bothers the doctor & felt very ill. I was admitted later that evening to hospital.
Just felt that I was being rushed through, not really listened too and that I was waisting her time
Absolutely and totally trust this doctor. She is very patient and always listens in a very non judgemental way. I feel no hesitation in asking to see her for any of my health issues. If only all doctors were like her!
