"Disappointing"

About: St George's Hospital (Tooting) (London)

I travelled a long way to see a supposed expert in their field, only to find out they were no help at all. I could have been told that nothing could be done beforehand and saved myself a journey.

What I didn't understand is why the doc who took my history said I would need scans etc but the other doctor just said no point and that was the end of the matter - did the first doctor just not know what they were talking about? Odd, and very disappointing.
