Primary care physician
I am 78 years old. I have been seeing my primary care physician (who only treats seniors) for over a year. He is knowledgeable and has gotten me off many medications.
I always shower, wear a dress, and make up like I would if going out to eat or grocery shopping.
About 4 months ago his patient helpers ask me why I was dressed up? I explained that going to my doctor was a time to "get dressed". One said, "Did u dress up for the doctor?" We all had a good laugh and I forgot about.
Now 4 months later on a routine visit my doctor, his PA, and 2 more in training came in w/ questions about my health etc. Then my doctor who is probably in late 40, from India, ask me ,"Why u wear a dress and lipstick? how old are u?"
I can not get this off my mind ! On my next visit in 3 months do I address this, forget it or ignore??
What do u wear when u go visit your doctor? I am not interested in him, nor have i flirted or teased him. I am a retired RN and feel I have been professional.
I am to the point of changing doctors. HELP!
