Previous doc had dismissed my mention of stomach pain  
The same doc who spent a long time trying to talk me into gastric bypass surgery also brushed off my mention of abdominal pain as a likely symptom of my depression. (Note that I have had depression off and on for decades so I'm likely to know what the symptoms I typically suffer are.)

It turned out to be liver disease.

I wonder if it's worth it to give him any more feedback in the hopes he won't dismiss another woman's symptoms or not. Or if I have the energy.

If you have the energy, it would be worth it to add to a formal report to whatever board oversees his licensing.

I've been thinking of writing to him directly. And without mentioning names I want to detail some of my experiences for the medical group he's part of because he hasn't been the only one to have biases that interfere with doing his job.

I want to save the nuclear option for later :)
