I see my p-doc primarly for med so some sessions are strictly about how stable I am (or am not), side effects, etc. However, I always feel 100% comfortable talking to him about whatever is on my mind. He mostly just listens and comments or asks a question here and there.

I don't think I could stay with a pdoc that I felt uncomfortable with. So what if you have high standards. Maybe you just haven't met the right pdoc for YOU. My son didn't connect with one until his 4th and then they clicked right away. Then again, perhaps the pdoc was just trying to gain insight into your thought process. Reading the write-up would have certainly helped, but sometimes I think they want to hear it out of our mouths (observing body language, etc) to get a better "feel" for things. It's so hard to tell with just one visit when you were justifyably on the defensive.
