I had an echo test for longstanding and evidenced symptoms. My symptoms had got worse recently to the point it made me feel close to blacking out several times. The echo report was handed to me but it stated my name as that of my G.P even though the technician was corrected on this in the waiting area. After the echo test, I went to medical outpatient's where I had an appointment with a doctor. In the meantime, I had an ECG which was abnormal. My appointment time was 4.15pm but I did not get to see the doctor until 5.45pm. During the wait I started to feel unwell. No apology was offered by doctor for the 90 minute delay. Apart from that we felt the doctor was unsympthatic and he made me feel I was wasting his time, and taken too much of his time, because my condition wasn't going to kill me.
