"Rude and dismissive Neurologist"

About: Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske) / Neurology

(as the patient),

I was seen by a neurologist at Royal Cornwall Hospital (Treliske). He arrived for clinic very late without apology; was in my opinion impatient, arrogant, rude and very dismissive of my symptoms.

He would not answer my questions and even told me to look something up on the internet when I think he could easily have answered me. I tried to explain what leads to the symptoms I experience but he interrupted me with what I think was a rude and off hand comment.

Before he even examined me, which seemed to be a chore, he had already made a diagnosis. He wouldn't tell me which medication he was recommending but would write to my GP.

I will be complaining officially.
