"No trust at all in the doctors of this hospital"

About: Western Eye Hospital

What I liked

After years of severe eye problems (conjuntivitis, itchi eyes, dry eyes) my GP finally saw that it was just more of "hayfever" and something else was behind all these symptoms.

The several eye tests I've done through the years also alerted me and GP to the fact that my eyes were becoming incresingly dry and sensitive.

At this hospital, add 2 appoitments/2 doctors and left without any other result than before: "it's hayfever, need to be careful with facial cremes and make up (that I clearly do not wear )"

Needless to say that the previous symptoms gotten worse and I don't produce any tears at the moment in my eyes .... and still no justification for it until I saw a reumathologist who was interested enough in me to make me do some tests and finally diagnose me with Sjrogren's syndrome. When I saw the Optician here're the opinion: "how did you get have your eyes like this for so long? didn't any of my coleagues ever did some blood tests to diagnose the cause of this?" my answer was the truth: no!

So do I trust Western Eye Hospital and the team of doctors in it? Absulutely not!
