"Came away confused!"

About: Orsett Hospital

Very disappointed and confusing to say the least. The doctors stood up shook my hand and Asked how old i was. This didn't make me feel too good to start with then i really couldnt understand what he was saying so had to keep asking to repete what he was saying ..he asked if i was deaf..i said i suffered from tinnitus but the reason was i was asking him to repete himself was because i just didn't understand what he was saying. He said did i want to have treatment before the MRI or after then he was asking if i was diabetic i said I wasn't and he kept saying you sure. Then asked why i take ibuprofen when i already explained that I had fibromyalgia. He also asked if i suffered with depression i said that I did have depression at times because of the way i feel with my fibromyalgia and the dizziness. (Enough to make anyone feel depressed!). I dont feel that he understood anything i was saying and i left feeling it was a total waste of time. I'm not waiting to go for a MRI then have to return for the follow up
