If my T forgot to call me for a second time, and if I was feeling well enough, I would call her and leave a message saying so. "I was expecting your call and didn't hear from you."
Without talking about how outraged or hurt I was. (Just the facts, you know?)
That would give the T the opportunity to explain what happened this time.
Then the conversation about expectations and trust can happen. But let the dialogue happen first.
I'm at a loss as to your pdoc's reaction, except to say that I'm sorry that being honest and vulnerable didn't pay off with him.
