"The consultant insulted my intelligence. ..."

About: West Cumberland Hospital

(as the patient),

Anything else?

The consultant insulted my intelligence. He asked if i took steroids then i guess he thought that i didnt know what he was talking about. I stood there whilst he told his colleague that i ruptured a bicep tendon by "Infiltrating" my arm. Utter nonsense. He had no interest whatsoever in helping me. I'm scared of needles for a start. Very unprofessional attitidude.
