"Worst urologist I have seen in my life"

About: Diana, Princess Of Wales Hospital

If you want great, experienced, caring urologists; go elsewhere. Grimsby is the worst place I have been under a consultant at. They don't do what they say they would do; even after 6 months, there contempt with using the evidence from one test to say everything is perfect, even when there are major problems are occurring, they look down at you as if to say; when you say there is a problem, implying that you don't know what your talking about. They don't treat you like a human being, just a case that they will solve when they can be bothered.

On my first point, it took my urology consultant over 6 months to call another urologist in Wakefield.

Secondly, I had urodynamics done, which came back as good results, twice, they said I was normal; the consultant was contempt with this even though I was complaining that I had reflux, bladder spasms and recurring UTI's (which has now all been confirmed that I did have)

Thirdly, unless you make a fuss and start arguing with them, with a member of your family in your room, they would happily leave you to rot.

Thankfully, I am now with a consultant elsewhere and I am on the waiting list for surgery to hopefully help with the problems I have, if I was still under the same consultant I would of been left to rot, heavily depressed and angry. The funny thing is the urologist, is supposed to be the specialist for the entire area.
