Switch HMO's. The doctor (you said) seemed
in a rush. Reminds me of a union dental group
dentist telling his assistant, "He needs more
work. We'll have to take this [time] out of the next
appointment." Steer clear of any doctor who has
lost his control of quality time with his clients.

Maybe he's got better things to do, like treating ill people. Why go to
your doctor if you have no symptoms that worry you?

If he is part of a medical plan (HMO, etc), he is probably doing what
is normal for that plan, so it is not _him_.

Much would depend on why you had the exam. I can't imagine why they
would check the prostate in a 36 year old, unless you reported a
problem.

Maybe ask him, or the plan? Jumping doctors without doing that would
seem an overreaction.

Thanks,

p.s. I hope this question is appropriate for this group. I couldn't find a
better one.

Max,
Yes, it's my opinion that you should find a new doctor. I'm 54 years old
and have had at least 10 or more physical exams and those doctors always
checked my prostrate gland and done a urine test.
