I visited tees valley treatment centre on the 3rd february and was extremely dissapointed with the service. The doctor seemed extremely uninterested in the problem i was visiting him with. I was sat in the room roughly 15 minutes not solving anything more when i left than what i arrived. While i was sat in the consultation room i was continuously interrupted with various staff members having enquiries with the doctor and interupting the consulation which i assume was meant to be 'private and confidential' with one member of staff sitting themselves on the bed next to me watching and listening while me and the doctor where reviewing my radiographs! I felt extremely uneasy and quite embarressed. The line of trust and confidentiality was definitley broken. The radiologist who took my X-rays had a very abrupt tone which is not how you expect to be treated when visiting a hospital with 'caring professionals'! Overall very poor professionalism and i will be extremely hesitant to visit tees valley in the future. Not the best impact to make on nervous patients!
