"Eye Department worthing hospital"

About: Worthing Hospital

I am extremely unhappy with my treatment at the eye department. The Doctor who injected into my eye, shouted at me, had an appalling technique and was very anxious in his manner and blamed me and I could tell he didn't know what he was doing. He caused me great pain and made my eye bleed and I couldn't see out of my eye. Another Doctor was called to do my other eye and that went perfectly and he was very calm and professional. I had to stay in the department as I was in pain and have my eye patched. I have been 3 times before and it has been fine and never hurt . This doctor who caused me so much pain and made out it was my fault should be banned from working.
