People who "hear" what they think you are saying instead of what you're actually saying.
I was in the hospital for almost three days this week. I went to the ER Monday afternoon, got admitted and then was discharged this evening. On the way out, the internist who was my doctor during the hospital stay proceeded to lecture me about not having a regular gyn. I tried explaining that I was "doctor shopping", and the reason why I hadn't settled on one yet is because I haven't found one that I like. I've seen two, and both of them have been less than helpful. Now, it's important that a patient is comfortable with any doctor, but a gyn is even more important than most specialties, considering the sensitive nature of the parts they deal with. Anyway, this internist just couldn't get it through is head that I wasn't complaining about the doctors I saw in the hospital itself, and that I was fine with the care I received there, but I wasn't going to see just any doctor just so I could say I had a regular doctor, and that I would continue to shop around until I found somebody I'm comfortable with.
