"Doctors attitude has made me worried to go back"

I frequently have to be admitted to Glasgow royal, with a ongoing medical condition. this condition flares up and I am in extreme pain, and vomit, basically feel very poorly. The Doctor who treated me I found him Abrupt, I feel his one on one approach was a lot to be none existent. Frequently I felt he was speaking down to me as if I was a child, I started by trying to fill him in with past experiences and he rudely stopped me from speaking stating who is the one with the medical degree. would I stop commenting on things I clearly new nothing about.
I went to my nearest AE because I felt unwell certainly not to be spoke down to, or made to feel intimidated. I was given pain relief 2 hours after he saw me, even though I tried to express the pain I was in, he told me he had sick people to see to I was in hospital two weeks so I guess I must have been one of the sick people he mentioned.
This doctor has made me scared worried to go near a hospital again I wish they new the impact there behaviour and conduct reflects on our experiences with hospital.
No one should have to feel like a time waster or indeed feel frightened to go back, it is hard dealing with a medical diagnoses and the affects of this without facing such hostility. My consultant is wonderful who treats me at southern general, so this registrar for a time blocked out the good.
please please rethink attitude as they have a huge impact on our lives, hopefully when I have another relapse I will not be faced with this conduct again. Here is hoping.
