Do doctors really listen to you if you are a senior?


I find that many have a "well what do you expect at your age" kind of attitude. e.g. I told my doctor I hurt too much after an hour in the pool,because this was not a new exercise,and my body should be used to it. All he said was"how many other 80-year old people spend an hour in the pool? I found that irrelevant and off putting,but he was gone before I could object.
