"If I had the same thing happen again, I wouldn't go to the hospital"

About: Lincoln County Hospital / Accident and emergency

(as the patient),

I was suffering from chest pains and after I had used the nhs symptoms checker, it said that I should call an ambulance but I don't like to be a burden on the ambulance service. So my daughter took me to A&E the reception staff nurses and xray staff were all very good and the waiting time was reasonable. My only concern is that the doctor I saw made me feel like I shouldn't be there. I feel that if I had the same thing happen again. I wouldn't go to the hospital
