"dissapointed!"

About: Fairfield General Hospital

My husband had an appointment at the racp dept at fairfield.I went with him for his first appointment.we waited a while before he got called to do tests. When he went someone called his name once.When he come back he was told to wait to see the doctor.We waited a while when a nurse said "are you still here". Later a nurse come over and asked my husband to wait in a different area to see the doctor about his results.We waited another forty minute's. A nurse come up to him and asked if they could have a word with him. The nurse took him to a room, where they told him they had called him numerous time's. That they had made another appointment for him at the earliest appointment in September! He stormed out. I asked the nurse what was going on and the nurse told me they had called him four time's. I told them that was ridiculous as I had been sat there waiting for him, and they called him once when he was in another room having his test's done. We live nowhere near Fairfield,and my husband lost a day's pay to go to this appointment .Disgusted how they treat you, especially when his own doctor wanted him to get seen quickly to see what's wrong with him!
