You should have came out and said, "with that attitude it makes me wonder how you still have patients coming to see you" then promptly left.
I cannot believe all the negative comments about this doctor. I HIGHLY doubt he said that out of the blue or it was related in ANY way to her vag. I bet she was one of those super annoying bitches that all of you at your jobs bitch about too! Everyone complains about customers in customer service, and a patient is just a doctors customer. Dr's are human too, and just because they make more than minimum wage doesn't mean they have to take shit from others.
Yea ofcourse you would brush before check up. That doesnt mean you will be perfectly clean in the mouth if you havent been keeping up on brushing. So the dentist should be professional and say the good things (if you have any to point out) and be honest that you can do better... Not question about how any body would like you from your horrible cleaned mouth.. Its rude.
Perhaps the doctor wasn't complaining about the OP's hygiene but their attitude in general. Ex: my mother is a horrible patient and constantly complains that everything the doctor does-- hurts her before the doctor even touches her. None the less, that doctor still didn't have any rights talking about the OP or anyone else for that matter.
Get back out there and tell him you can hear him..make him feel the shame OP, and then walk out without paying.
In most doctors offices, you pay up-front and handle the insurance business before you see the doctor. So you may still be out of pocket on this one, OP. But you, definitely, should have let the doctor know you could hear him. And inform him that you'll be contacting the B.B.B. or some sort of higher authority to inform them of his unprofessionalism.
Some doctors and dentists are complete douchebags to their customers...you obviously have one of them...
Doctors can be so arrogant. Once, I had a doctor give me a prescription and he asked what pharmacy I used. I told him and he said he would fax it over. I asked if I would be able to pick it up soon. His unhelpful response was," Well its not going to walk to your house."
My dentist scolded me for 20 minutes about my tongue ring (which I normally take out for appts, but the hygienist said I could leave it) and how after a few years it starts damaging your teeth. I told him I'd had it for 7 years and he just stopped mid-sentence and said "oh, well you should still take it out, you're such a nice girl" Which made me feel like he was saying having it made me a whore!
