"Distressing and negative experience at my GP Practice"

About: Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire

(as the patient),

I have recently had a doctors appointment with with my GP and can only describe my experience as distressing and negative.

My GP was running late by half an hour. Upon entry to her consult room she seemingly demanded I outline why I was here briefly so she could adhere to my appointment slot, she did not seem to listen to my explanation of symptoms before reaching a diagnosis and suggesting treatment which I felt was completely irrelevant to me. This made it quite apparent that my GP had not checked my medical records to establish an awareness off my medical history.

My main concern is the attitude and lack of compassion shown by someone in an advisory and healing profession. During my appointment I was seemingly shouted at, and spoken to as though I were worthless.

I strongly feel as though my GP is in the wrong profession, and would advise the local community to avoid her at all costs.
