What I liked
Prompt appt time.
What could be improved
A full physical examination,Ithink doctor had made up his mind about me based on previous tests.
My gp knew what was wrong with me 6 months ago,I am much weaker now,but based on one negative BNP blood test it seems I am not taken seriously.
I know my own body,and would not wish my cardiac symptoms on anyone.
I suppose I am one patient who has slipped through the net.
I am sure the consultants get it right 99% of the time.
This is not a personal attack on this doctor,as a neurologist I did not realise he would have detailed knowledge of cardiology.
A full physical would confirm what I have without any further tests.
I think I have cost the nhs enough already.
