Metafilter, what is your biggest gripe about visiting your OB-GYN?

I am doing some general research on systems engineering in healthcare and I would greatly appreciate any personal stories you have or general suggestions as to what you particularly hate, despise, or merely dislike about your women's health visits. I'm trying to get a feel for the human side of the equation.
Naturally I would think cold rooms, cold equipment, awkward chatting, long waiting times alone and less-than-gentle treatment would be at the top of the list but I thought I would ask and see what else came up, since I really have no idea at all.
General gripes about the miserable state of healthcare in the USA are not unwelcome but are not really the focus of this question.
Thank you for your time.
