It may be that she is a little distant because she's not sure what you would prefer.
I often see my clients out and about. I never say hello or acknowledge them first - if they say hi to me of course I'll say hi back but I never initiate contact.
I do it because I don't know if they want anyone to know they may have seen me. It's probably a little different with your gp but I'm always really aware that people may not want to explain why they know a lawyer (especially a divorce lawyer).
I don't meant to be rude at all - I just don't want to make any of my clients (including previous clients) uncomfortable or having to explain to someone.
Just another perspective

It's interesting when you work in a profession where you 'see' people or interact with them in a way where you know a bit about each other. It can blur the boundaries a bit - for example when I'm at work I am doing my job and in my element. I can talk to the parents there for hours, and yes, small talk too.
If I bumped into the same parents at the local park or something I would feel incredibly awkward and be rubbish at small talk even though we know quite a lot about each other. I don't know if that makes sense?
So the vibe you feel may just be shyness, or her natural personality. I wouldn't push things out of obligation, but I also wouldn't assume there is some professional awkwardness there.
