What I liked
The receptionist was helpful and caring and tried to get medical staff to inform patients of what was happening
What could be improved
I was sat for 2.5 hours for my procedure. A man who came into the waiting area over an hour after me complained about his wait and was assured he would be next in for treatment. I understand that occasionally some patients who have medical conditions need to be seen firat, but this wasn't the case in this insident.When i approached the receptionist about the length of time I had been waiting she blamed ABC booking system, but it was quite clear that the medical staff were mis mangeing the patient list and had no idea who was waiting and where they were up to on the list, whoever complained got in next.
Having had this procedure before I had no anxiety about not having sedation as they were skillful and competant and completed the procedure showing great care for their patient. However another time the doctor was clumsy and uncaring in their administration of the procedure and made it a very traumatic experience. I know that if I had to have this procedure again I would be very anxious and stressed and would not allow this Doctor to perform any procedure on me again.
