RUDE, DISMISSIVE AND JUDGMENTAL
I went to Dr. Wadsworth's office because I was new to Atlanta and it is very close to my home. I made an afternoon appointment for an annual exam, and had to fast all day because of blood work. I was about to leave work to go to the appointment, and I received a call from the nurse that it had to be rescheduled because of a family emergency (unfortunately I had fasted for nothing). When I finally went in, the nurse was very kind and helpful. As soon as I met Dr. Wadsworth, I found her to be brusque, rude, and very rough in her gyn exam. I thought that maybe she was in a hurry since she had to make up missed appointments due to the family emergency. When she asked me about medications I had been taking, she was extremely judgmental about my SSRI for depression, and promptly gave me a letter explaining her views on prescribing depression medication... she doesn't. When I asked her if she could recommend a psychiatrist, she off-handedly said she had some friends that she could recommend, but that they did not accept insurance. At this point, I felt judged, I was sore from my exam, and I felt emotionally vulnerable. I paid my copay and rushed out of the office in tears. I could not believe her harshness and lack of understanding! I would never recommend her to anyone. I can't believe that others have had similar experiences because I was sure that it was just me.
