"Cold doctors with no bedside manner"

About: Stepping Hill Hospital

I have seen a few consultants in here, and they are always people with a very cold manner.

If I want to enquire about something or try to show them my personal thoughts on what I believe is happening to me, they become arrogant and dismissive.

These people think so highly of themselves and should be trained to have more warmth and friendliness.

I come out in tears because I dont feel like Im treated as a human being.

Oh for the days when doctors actually felt compassion!
