1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends
If you truly believe the doctor insulted you and got no apology from the doctor, you can contact patient relations if it occurred in a hospital or large hmo situation.
You also have the option of filing a formal complaint to the state medical board (# should be in phone book or on web). Any action taken will depend on the circumstances of the interaction. Or find a new doctor.

In brief: Insult
Agree with my colleague, but recommend as first step to confront that doctor with what happened & how it felt.
