I think these are the cases where the doctor should be made aware of the situation/reason, the problem being how to bypass "Nurse Ratched" so that he gets the info.

We've experienced a couple of these cases. In the first, the doctor had an independent office, but seemed to allow the office mgr. to run the practice (beyond running the office). In the second, the office was part of a large medical center, and doctor and staff were all employees of that large corp., so things were less under doctor's direct control. Fortunately, in this case, Nurse Ratched was so miserable that she moved on, and her replacement has been much better.

Also avoided one specialist because his PA, who ran the initial consultation, was a total control freak with an out of control ego. Never saw or talked to the doctor, and never went back.

Yeah well, that's just, ya know, like, your opinion, man. ~ The Dude

On the other hand, back in my 20's I had a doctor with a stunningly beautiful young blonde at the front desk. I tried to see that doctor as often as possible.
