"painful shoulder scan"

About: Worthing Hospital

i came to the x ray department for a ultra Scan on a very painful shoulder. I was told where to wait by a very friendly receptionist. I was most impressed i was called into the waiting room ,within 5 minutes ,and was helped to get prepared for the Scan by a very friendly helpful nurse. the nurse then went off to get the Dr to do the scan . who appeared within 5 minutes. The Dr was the most caring kind man who explained the procedure from start to end . It turned out that I had the same Dr that had treated me a year ago at Goring Hall private hospital. I can only say i got the same efficient treatment from this Dr at Wort hing hospital under the NHS that I received from a private hospital.It proved to me this Dr treats every patient with the same caring manner if you are a private patient or a NHS patient. I came out of the hospital with nothing but praise for the Dr and the treatment i had received from Worthing hospital.
