"consultants"

About: Brighton General Hospital

Anything else?

I recently attended the dermatology department .my initial arrival was good, i was then directed to a room where i was interviewed by 2 student doctors who ask me what my problems were,, the student doctors were attentive and courteous, I was then seen by a female consultant who's attitude was uncaring and non interested,she asked me a few questions and we spoke about the amount os prescription drugs i was taking, after a perfunctory exam she just said we will give you some cream and a few more tablets. I was most dissatisfied by this persons doctor/patient relationship, i could almost hear her thoughts { why are you wasting my time] . I left feeling why did i waste my time. i intend to make a serious complaint of the complacency of this doctor. What might seem trivial to the doctors is often a great deal of discomfort ant pain to the patient. Most unsatisfactory visit with no comfort .
