About: Heavitree Hospital / Dermatology Heavitree Hospital Dermatology EX1 2ED
Posted by Anappleaday (as ),
I have a mole on my back that was raised and itchy so I went to get it checked out. My GP sent me to a dermatologist to be on the safe side (all was well in the end). I received my appointment promptly and was given an appointment at the RD&E Heavitree. I was really pleased to be seen on time and was out of the hospital in 10 minutes which was great. The doctor was quite brusque and didn't introduce himself but wasn't rude and I was happy with the way I was dealt with. The main reason I wanted to feedback was to say that it was a bit of a shock that I had to strip to my underwear and have an all over body exam. I would have felt more comfortable had I known in advance and thought I'd suggest that you put it in the appointment letter for future patients.
