I took my son to see Dr. Dinehart about a skin condition that was keeping him up every night because he was itching so bad. Upon entering the room, he introduced himself and referenced that dermatology was a lot like behavior psychology. He went on to confirm what the physicians assistant had said, which happened to be the only bit of useful information. He talked down to me, he told me that my son would grow out of this skin condition eventually and that the only reason my son was worried about it was because I was worried. He also said I was obsessing. I told him that I wasn't worried this was going to hurt his development, but that it was just miserable not knowing what was wrong with him and watching him scratch and cry every day. He kept referencing that he will be fine later in life (and showed no concern to my son's current level of discomfort), then said "unless you continue to obsess, then he will grow up thinking something is wrong with him." I told him I felt insulted, he didn't care and continued on with his arrogance. I once again told him that I was feeling insulted and he said "well, exactly which doctor have you not had a problem with?" Once he knew I was upset, he just kept going and got more and more cocky as if he was enjoying it. The situation greatly resembled a high school bully picking on someone they felt were inferior.
I am not a doctor person. I don't go and only take my children if it is affecting their every day life. I also do not obsess and was only trying to find out what was wrong with my little boy. Obviously, he had a pre established opinion of me before he walked in based on his experiences with other moms and their children. I eventually just got up and walked out because he would not stop.
I have NEVER been so disrespected in my entire life. I took my son to the dermatologist and instead of focusing on the problem, he crowned himself as a self proclaimed behavioral psychologist that was completely off base, disrespectful and rude.
