last time (2017), Dr. Hassan was a bit confusing as to my diagnosis and plan of care. Today was great, direct and clear, even made a joke

I know my situation has been difficult for the doctors to figure out, however I felt Dr was condescending towards me and made me feel like I was making things up. He didn't know what to do with me yet seemed frustrated with me because I didn't know what to do either. He gave me no information about other possibilities of what the pain could be, however my family physician shared with me what he and Dr. Hassan had been discussing for several days. I left very upset simply because of the way he made me feel. Dealing with extreme pain for over a week and having no idea what is causing it is scary. Being told I made it worse because I went to church on Sunday was upsetting, especially since I was not given any directions when I left the hospital to do nothing.
