"Traumatic experience with GP"
Posted by Impact701 (as ),
My last experience with my GP was a traumatic one for me. My GP was very impatient with me, and actually said because I had been five minutes late for my appointment, I was being treated on an emergency slot, so he was not ready for ‘my stories’ His demeanour and tone was disheartening, and conveyed the message that I was some sort of a hypochondriac. He uttered rather hurriedly and in a dismissive manner that he would refer me to a specialist and called in another staff member and ordered that I was given a different doctor next time. I was dismayed by all of this.
The TRAQs team member that called me was kind. My appointment at the Manor Hospital went well. I am to undergo an EEG test to ascertain whether there is any trace of epilepsy as per my history.
