"I found the new Hospital pleasing over..."

What could be improved

I attended for a Colonscopy, I did not like the way I was asked to undress and put on a theatre gown and then left to sit in a waiting room with several other patients, with a plastic bag full of my belongings and the bottom of the gown some where between my knees and the top of my legs. I found this rather un setling to say the least. I would ask for this to be changed.

Anything else?

Over all I found the total procedure O/k. But would like to see my earlier comments acted on
