Is it normal for pediatricians to be angry, judgmental, and impatient? We only see pediatricians once a year – thank goodness – but it’s always traumatic.
We are with our second practice, and it’s horrible every time. It takes a lot to make me feel like I’m a shitty, inferior mother but I always feel like that around these pediatricians.
Today’s doctor aggressively suggested that something is wrong with Klara if she has such poor language skills and that I need to learn how to communicate with her. You folks know that Klara makes up stories and says things like “we shouldn’t have done it,” so language skills are not a burning issue in her life.
I’m a total wreck after today’s annual checkup.
