Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
It is a well-studied fact that many doctors treat women differently than men — even when they have the same symptoms or complaints. A former patient wrote me of one such experience, in which while reading I found myself shaking my head. This is her letter:
“Many years ago I was the passenger in a car involved in an accident. I was instantly in terrible back pain. The orthopedist my GP referred me to looked at the x-rays taken in the emergency room and told me, “Rest your back. Take this codeine. And see me again in 3 weeks.”
I saw him every 3 weeks for three months and then I exploded. I demanded to know why I wasn’t getting any treatment. He gave me the stink-eye and said, “I’ve treated enough malingering women to know one when I see one. There’s nothing wrong with your back. You just like laying around in bed all day.”
I was so shocked! This doctor knew NOTHING about me. He didn’t know I had built from scratch one of the largest privately-owned commercial cleaning services in my city, that I had been working 7 days a week and had not taken a vacation in 8 years. I EXPLODED at him! In response, he said, “All right. I’m going to send you for every test your insurance will cover, and when they all show there’s nothing wrong with you, you are going to apologize for your behavior here today.”
One week later I reported to his office for the test results. When this doctor came into the exam room, he spoke to me in an entirely different way. He sounded concerned. He said, “The MRI shows 3 discs are ruptured and pressing on a nerve. You must be in terrible pain.”
He went on to outline a treatment plan for the herniated discs, never once acknowledging or apologizing for the fact that he’d never believed me as month after month I’d complained that I was in terrible pain. When he finished his report, I stood up, told him I’d be seeking treatment elsewhere and left. I was in such a murderous rage I didn’t dare say anymore.”
What To Do If Your Doctor Treats You Differently Than He Treats Men
I think it goes without saying that doctors (or any other person or profession) should never treat women differently than they treat men. In a perfect world there would be no such discrimination. But since we don’t live in a perfect world, my advice is that if you find yourself in such a position, first realize that you are not the problem. Then quickly run out the door, never look back and find someone who will listen to you and is able to help.
