"breast ultrasound"

About: Homerton University Hospital

I had an appointment for a breast ultrasound in this hospital as I have problems in both breast and my GP sent me here to check. The breast physician only checked one my breast. I asked them several times why only one breast, because in last ultrasounds in other hospitals they checked both as I have problems in both, but the doctor was very rude, not even gave me a proper response, they said it looked ok without even do the ultrasound in the other breast. I am very disappointed with this, the gp sent me for an ultrasound for both breast, now I don't know if there is something wrong with my other breast, not even told me the results.
