"Bit too short for a appointment"

About: Chapel Allerton Hospital

Orthopeadic clinic was running nearly a hour behind, when I got in to see the doctor they were very rude didn't want to listen to what I had to say! Iv had problems with inflammation in my shoulder which is tendinitis and bursitis and iv nerve impingement! Previously had steroid injection which hasn't not helped, the doctor stated in this five min appointment which was useless that there's nothing they can do! Didn't even ask me how I was with the pain or nothing seemed like the doctor rushed to get next patient in! The doctor told me to carry on physio which is causing more pain but yet they won't investigate further! So off back to gp to get a referral to someone who i hope will look in to the problems I'm having and not fob me off!! So angry
