"bedside manner must be a thing of the past"
About: Hexham General Hospital Hexham General Hospital Hexham NE46 1QJ
I attended the breast clinic today following a referral from my GP. I have never felt so dehumanised by a doctor as I did today. The consultant would not listen to me or answer my questions, they didn't take the time to find out why I was there or the specifics of my problem. The attitude and demeanour left me feeling I was wasting their time and I was dismissed with no answers, and feeling worse than when I arrived. I am astonished that a consultant dealing with patients who are dealing with a very worrying situation would be so flippant and unprofessional.
