"Thorough examination by a doctor who cares"

Anything else?

I Knew there was something wrong with me but could not tell what it was. Walked into the hospital and about an hour later one of the young lady doctors at A&E asked me to give samples and carried out a number of tests. She was going back and forth speaking to different people and awaiting the test results. Everything looked fine but she really took her time to assess me and made sure I did not leave without thorough examination. She had me admitted to one of the wards overnight where I was told almost 2 days later that I had TB. I have been to hospitals and GPs many times with similar symptoms only to be told that I am OK and there is nothing wrong with me. I am really grateful to God that this lady listened to me and took her time to examine me and speak to other professionals. I visit the hospital for check ups since and I always look out for this doctor to say thanks because I felt she had a heart and cares. She was good!!!
