Probably 15 or so years ago I changed jobs and the new place had a managed PCP type healthcare plan. I got randomly assigned a doctor who was to be my PCP. All care had to be coordinated through her. I should have known that something was slightly off as during my physical she asked me if I had any special abilities or super powers
. I said no, just the usual ones.
On the upside, I was basically directing my own care. If I needed to see a specialist or anything, I would make a quick appointment with her, chat about reiki or remote sensing or whatever her current trendy alternative care du jour was, then ask for a referral or a prescription or whatever.
She was generally pretty good, although when I wanted to try accupuncture for my back pain, she was like "oh goody, I've always wanted to try that. Can I try first??". Oh, and once when we were chatting after an appointment, she told me how that the first year or so of surgery internship was really hard for her because during med school all the organs in the dummies were color coded, but real bodies are not. Wow.
Anyways, that is the only time I've really had success changing a doctor's mind.
