"The Docter that treated my daughter"

About: Good Hope Hospital

My daughter wasn't well so we wher in good hope hospital overnight and the nurses where wonderful very kind and nice and helpful, it's just the Docter I had a problem with. I mean I don't know if I'm over reacting but I wasn't happy cause he seemed moody, he didn't smile once and the way he was talking to me about my six year old daughter it was like he was having a go at me. I wasn't gonna do this review thing but when we got discharged the nurse gave me a number to ring if I had any concerns, so I did and I phoned and it was the same Docter. I told him why I phoned and what my concern was, he just spoke to me like I should of known and again it felt like he was having a go at me and he actually hurt my feeling and made me cry and I just hanged up. b4 I hanged up I said I wish I never phoned. from today now I don't feel like going to that hospital again.
