A good specialist wants to help increase your degree of knowledge and should welcome your questions, as treatment of any and all conditions is always more effective if the patient is better informed and their concerns are dealt with and questions answered. It helps, though if you don't arrive with pre-conceived decisions about matters within his expwertise, rather than asking and discussing your concerns and getting his opinion. Iron-deficiency anaemia is a really common condition, and I have never heard of it needing R800 rand a month treatment lasting 6 months. Maybe a second opinion would have been wise, and may still be wise.
Prematurity has nothing to do with allergies, and isn't the mother's fault.
You have been under stress and maybe therefore more irritable and it would also be easier to see things as more dreadful than they really are. ANd surely he is also likely to be feeling stressed if he is shortly to retire ? And thus more irritable and prone to exaggeration, too ?
HR or not, there are laws and regulations requiring any company to treat their workers fairly - maybe you should check out your rights with a labour lawyer or the Dept of Labour ?
