Dismissive doctors

Does anybody feel that their doctors are dismissive of symptoms? It seems that female doctors listen a little better, but I still feel unheard. Like the go to diagnosis is depression or hormonal. I have a specialist who listens, but it's been hard to find a primary care physician. One asked if I had been on WebMD, treating me like a hypochondriac.
