Glad to report that my experience this evening was excellent.
I had a sudden painful swelling of my knee starting yesterday, and this got much worse today. My doctor this evening suggested going to the Hospital to get it checked out.
I arrived about 8.35. Took 20 mins to check-in - due to horribly sad case ahead of me. 5 minutes afterwards I was with efficient, friendly triage nurse - took BP etc. Agreed I should see doctor.
A Dr Hussein very professional and helpful. Thought I had Bursitis, but wanted an x-ray in case anything worse.
5 minutes later, this was done. 15 minutes turnround for results.
Dr advised me to get Ibuprofen etc and take a couple of weeks to get back to normal.
Grateful outpatient left just before 10.00pm.
85 minutes elapsed time - very impressive and all the staff excellent.
How gratifying to share a good news story.
