I need some professional advice and wisdom. I started my first job, and the doctor I work for is trying to change who I am and brainwash me. After the first or second week working, he told me my hair was "potent" and told me I needed to use unscented shampoo. Okay fine no problem, I did that. The next week, he said he could still smell me then proceeded to approach me within 1 inch and literally sniff my head since he didn't believe me when I told him I changed shampoos. Then he told me it's my clothes too, I need to go buy fragrance free detergent. Wtf.
He will explain an extremely simple concept, and then say "does that make sense?"...why wouldn't it make sense...he has no faith in my mental capacity.
According to him, I am not allowed to use the word "drastic" as this has a negative connotation, and instead I should use the word "dramatic" as this is much better.
He wants me to use psychology on patients to influence them to be "regulars" at our practice, with emotional way of speaking, echoing, etc. He literally told me he wants me to use psychology on them.
Also, I wore business professional (conservative colors too) the entire time but he sat me down one day after the second week and told me I must not wear black pants as patients will find me untrustworthy. I have to wear navy pants and a white top. But black shoes are required (rolls eyes). Now, according to him, patients will take me seriously.
He told me I have to speak to the nurses in a way that gives them commands, because "they are here to obey our orders"...the nurses do what I ask of them even when I ask politely. I am new, I am not going to boss around the nurses.
I also get paid the same rate as a nurse, come to find out, in the state I live in so I feel jipped. I pay $200/month for health insurance, and it does not even include dental. I get 2 weeks off per month, and I had to negotiate that.
I haven't been here but a couple months but I want to leave desperately, and the field I'm in is very specialized.
He told me what we do is sales, and I have to treat certain patients better than others depending on the money they bring in the practice. I felt sick to my stomach, I can't be a part of this.
