"Dr On EGA wing so rude and obnoxious and..."

About: University College Hospital

I went to A& E complaining about nausea and discomfort and abdominal pain, sore eyes and general body weakness. i was admitted with glucose in urine being excessive. after prolonged blood check and IV fluids and after bed allocated for rest and monitoring over night on the way to my bed i was side tracked to find myself in the xray Dpt, with a difiant technician refusing to admister the dose i did not know about, luckily i refuused as the Dr who requested it was not honest about why i should go under x-ray machine despite having felt weak and suceptible to getting negetive side effect getting xrayed as this could significantly damage my working well maintained kidneys..i was nearly held hostage by this uncompassionate and self opinionated Dr who looked like he was up for more than 48 Hours + no wonder he was livid when i told him " I am going home for the night and see my GP in the morning. at one point there was in the corridor i was not given privacy and was made to argue with him in the corridor outside Xray unit..it was well embarrassing i tell this Dr was either obssessed being a control freak or must have been really tired and could not make sound decision ...i am literally going disgusted by the treatment i recieved from this Dr which i dont wanna name here ..it is time people in need of medical attention be treated the right way with copassion and gentle persuation with clear sound listneening.
