YES Please complain to your doctor about her "opions" on your condition. The doctor is the one treating you. She is a representative of his and his office. By her doing what she did is not a good reflection upon his office. Complain away my girl complain away. You have desevered the right to do it if you have to fight for meds and treatment. Why should you have to deal with anything more? Lots of love and support your way :)
