"Rheumatology"

About: Huddersfield Royal Infirmary

Waited 5 months to get my initial apt at Rheumatology, after being dismissed off their list twice in the past with only vague answers.

So after a 5 month wait, and had 2 apts cancelled I was seen. I was in and out in 4 minutes. Even though they knew I had had a life changing illness. I got a diagnosis, but it was a very dismissive one, and they would not listen or acknowledge anything I said about my symptoms. This is the 3rd time in 11 years I have been referred, and left feeling upset about the lack of interest in listening to me. They talk over you and at you, not to you. And make you feel like a whining child.
