Even though the office was empty when I arrived, I had to wait an hour and fifteen minutes past my appointment time for Dr. Tolbert to come see me. We spoke briefly of the issues I was having - years and years of chronic pain, gastrointestinal problems, and recurring infections. His diagnosis? It was all in my head! I was stunned at the audacity of the man, to look me in the eye and say such a thing. Clearly, he reasoned, if whatever I had didn't show up on some standard tests, then it wasn't possible that I had anything. This is the worst kind of doctor, who is so full of himself that when it appears that the diagnosis might be difficult, he simply throws up his hands and blames the patient. To think, I paid good money and waited over an hour to be insulted.
