This is a case where you can sue and should at the very least report him. He put you through emotional trauma for his own entertainment which is unacceptable for anyone but for a doctor it's grounds to loose his licence.
Doctor wouldn't lose their license over this, you Ambulance Chaser. And unless you already have a life threatening illness, you're going to have a breakdown in the office like this? Even if you have crippling anxiety, which believe me I know all about, this sounds like the reaction of a hypochondriac. Was this professional behaviour? No, apparently not in this case. Although, I'm sure the doctor didn't expect you to react the way you did. They very likely thought they could, though. Instead of going through litigation and in the long run raising the rates for everyone due to increased malpractice insurance; leave this doctor's practice and find another one that suits you better. I wouldn't think that they'll get much more than a slap on the wrist, so I wouldn't hold my breath about getting rich from closing this practice.
I wonder if there is a word for what he is doing. Oh right. Joking. Sure he may have let it go to far. But he was still joking.
27, that's like me jokingly attempting to push someone down a flight of stairs and then exclaiming "it was just a prank!" when they get pissed off at me for even jokingly doing something like that. It doesn't negate the fact that it was super inappropriate and potentially harmful to the recipient of my "prank". I may not have intended to truly hurt them, but that's still what happened.
That's messed up, well look on the bright side at least you aren't dying.
Having health issues and having been around doctors my entire life I agree that I like a doctor with a sense of humour, although yes, this doctor took it way too far. About 2/3 of the doctors I've met, and I've met a lot, have no bedside manner. I get that it's rough dealing with sick people day in and day out, and their schedules are insanely busy, but anyone having to go to the doctor doesn't want to be there and being nice, or making jokes, doesn't hurt.
