I learned the lesson long ago to never criticize or make the doctors mad. It shouldn’t be this way but there is a certain way to go about it.
I’ve been talked down to, not believed or dismissed by Dick head doctors. You basically have to buff up their egos so to speak when dealing with ones like that.
The number one things is never ask for anything specific.
Tell them your symptoms and diagnosis. Try what is given. If it doesn’t work tell them and hopefully, eventually, they will put you on what you know to work. It might take weeks or months.
Again it shouldn’t be this way but… this is America.
