"rude unorganised doctor"

About: North Manchester General Hospital

i visited the gastro department today ,my appointment was 1.50 and the doctor turned up at 2pm . The doctor sat in the office for 15 minutes before calling the 1st patient. after being there an hour i ask a nurse where i am on the list (once i found one ) and they told me i was next. Once that patient left it was a further 15 minutes before i went in. So i presumed the doctor would have read my notes, obviously not as the doctor didnt have a clue what id had done, and was trying to attribute symptoms i have with IBS which dont add up and when i questioned this the doctor became very defensive and suggested i get a 2nd opinion. This was all before the doctor had my MRI report which hadnt come back in time for my results !

The doctor was very rude to a much younger colleague which i found very unprofessional, Im very ill and i just felt insulted and frustrated , i have basically been told the report will be sent when it arrives and an appointment will be made in 4 months and if i want to cancel it and get a second opinion , then maybe a fresh pair of eyes will be better ! i have already been misdiagnosed by a doctor at this hospital and i will be sure not to chose it in the future i have no confidence in the doctors at all .
