"Could do better"

About: Springfield Hospital

I was not impressed with the surgeon, he never informed me about my treatment and what to expect after my surgery. He appeared in too much of a rush to leave the hospital. We were there from 12pm until 8.30, only I was given tea and two slices of toast, my wife was offered nothing. I was not impressed. The only reason that I am being anonymous, is that I have to see the consultant again. If there is no improvement in my condition by that time, I will be asking my GP for a second opinion.
