"Very unhappy with staff treatment"

About: Conquest Hospital

I was referred by my gp to the gynovology department for a lump found inside private parts around two years ago, after maybe 3/4 appointments/ woman's physio / top consultant appointments I am too nervous to even visit this hospital I have been told there is nothing wrong with me (even though they referred to phsio/ consultant) spoken to in such an unprofessional manner so uncaring about my feelings which has left me in tears at every occasion i am currently in the process of getting a private doctors opinion as I believe there is something wrong and would like to get it sorted out I have even been told by theses doctors " we don't operate on depression" can they not see this is causing me to feel depressed? I also have problems with my back passage and have spoken too in the same manner by this doctor also
