"Dermatology"

About: The Royal London Hospital

I had an appointment to see a dermatologist.

I have a rash around my eyes that flares up frequently. So bad that I can't go to work. Its causing me physical irritation and financial damage.

The day of my appointment it was not so bad, but i brought pictures to show of how it flares up. They did not even wanna see them!

While I was in there I felt so badly treated and spoken down to. They could not get me out the door quick enough.

Ive waited half a year for my appointment!

Its the least empathic person I've encountered in the NHS to date. I understand the doctors are under a lot of stress but this was way beyond whats acceptable when dealing with your patients!

No theory was presented to me as to what may be causing it. They basically just sent me back to my GP. But my GP sent me to dermatology because my GP doesn't know!

Help please!
