"Dismissed for being 10mins late! as Doctor..."

I had an appointment on Thursday 25th August @ 12.30 and left work from mcr airport and arrived at 12.40 (10mins late) checked in at reception and was told to take a seat me and this girl were the only people in the clinic and waited until this arrogant doctor decided to turn up at 12.55 (after waiting 15mins) to be told they would not be able to see me as they have to see the girl first and wont have time for me as they will be on their break! So while i was sat there twiddling my thumbs for 15 mins i could of been seen as there was nobody else this doctor was seeing too. I think its disgusting not only that i had been dismissed but to be dismissed because they were on their break is an absolute joke..The pathetic doctor has a duty of care to their patients. The medical centre is a joke!
