"Emergency eye clinic"

About: Essex County Hospital

I was extremely upset at this clinic the consultant was extremely rude and aggressive. After this humiliation asking whether I wanted him to look at my eye or not he then proceeded to ask why I had hair like a 20 year old,was I married or single and it went on. What a disgrace. I shall not be going back
