"I was asked by the doctor treating me..."

About: University Hospital Of North Durham

Anything else?

I was asked by the doctor treating me how much alcohol I drank. When I told him I had less than one drink a month he ridiculed me asking me 'What sort of student are you?' , 'Don't you ever let your hair down?' 'You aren't going to make many friends that way' and carried on in a similar vein as though it was quite inconceivable to him that someone might not like the taste of alcohol.

Apart from that my treatment was fine.
