"My baby with breathing problems"

About: Bishop Auckland Hospital / Urgent care

(as a parent/guardian),

I took my 5 month old baby to urgent care at Bishop Auckland on the 4/8/13

The doctor we saw was the most awful doctor I have ever been seen by. The doctor asked what was wrong we told them my baby was struggling with his breathing and had a terrible cough and was generally unwell

The doctor took a stethoscope to my baby's chest and talked the whole time very quickly removed it and said the chest was fine

Asked a few more questions and basically if felt like we were being told off with every answer we gave. The doctor then said its a viral infection and there is nothing they could do and actually said that my baby has breathing problems and what did I want them to do about it! "

We then left at that announcement because I am disgusted that this doctor is in a caring profession, clearly in the wrong job! ! ! We were in that room 6 minutes with that awful doctor

I took my baby to our local gp the next day and was diagnosed with a chest infection and has been given antibiotics! ! So we felt that doctor treated us like garbage and cannot diagnose a baby with a chest infection so my baby had to suffer. I am disgusted with this doctor and would advise people not to be treat by them! !
