on my first visit to the hospital i was treated really well by the doctor who had a lot of time for me ,i have suffered with abdominal problems for a while so my nhs gp referred me to see a specialist for a second opinion,after this visit i was given hope that my problems could be treated,but after the second visit i was left bitterly disappointed with the outcome, the second visit lasted approxiametely4 minutes,when the same doctor did notseem to have any time for me at all.i told him that my problems had not improved and that the tablets he prescribed did not make me feel any better and asked to be put back on the ones my gp originally prescribed,he did say he would arrange an mri scan for me ,which i asked if it would be on my stomach and middle back to which he replied yes, i recieved a copy of the letter being sent to my gp ,to which on reading the contents ,i was shocked and upset ,as the doctor said i was on the tablets that my gp prescribed ,which i am not,he has also said i was feeling better with my reflux symtoms,and he has said i need an mri scan on my spine,when i have already have had 2,due to an existing back problem,to top it all he has also discharged me
