How to make a clean break from disappointing doctor

The last time I saw my gynecologist, she glossed over the issue I’d come in for and gave me a test I didn’t want – without even discussing it with me first. In my previous visit, she ordered me a mammogram and brushed off my attempts to discuss the exam’s harms and benefits. It’s clear we have a communication problem, and frankly I’m ready to fire her – but how? Am I obligated to tell her I’m switching doctors? And what obligations does she have to me?
