Default Anybody had to fire their doctor?

Not my primary care guy, but a specialist. I really don't want to do it, but her behavior during my last appointment causes me some concern. I'm not questioning her competency or expertise, but I have outpatient surgery scheduled with her in a few weeks and I'm not sure if I'm comfortable with her at this point. I was completely confident in her until she p----- me off during my last visit (I'm not sure she's aware that she did, but I did leave her office suddenly in a huff without saying a word. Due to her bizarre demeanor at that point, I don't think she noticed).

If it was anybody else, the situation would be easy to handle. I'd just drop in, politely air my grievances, give her a chance to make it right or tell me to get lost. In my experience, that's what normal adults do, and that's how I'd prefer to handle it. I don't give up on people just because they irked me a couple of times.
