"Completely wasted my time"

I had an appointment in the dermatology department recently. First of all, I was not taken for my appointment until almost 20 minutes after the specified time (despite others who arrived after me being taken before me) and when I did eventually get seen to the doctor was rude and dismissive. I was given only basic information on my contact dermatitis which I already knew, and when I tried to speak the doctor insistently spoke over me and did not listen to what I had to say. I tried to explain a second condition which I had entirely independent of my condition on my hand but I was still offered no help and was only spoken to about the condition on my hand. I explained to the doctor that when I had last been to the departmentt they recommend I have a series of patch tests to determine the reason for my second conditionn - this was also dismissed. I left my appointment feeling angry and disappointed that I had completely wasted my time by even going. I shall have to now return to my GP for a re-referral (Which will once again take months) and specify that I do not wish to see the same doctor again.
