"Rude rheumatologist"

About: Christchurch Hospital / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

This consultant rhuematologist has no peoples skills whatsoever.

I felt uncomfortable because they shout when you are unable to do the movements they ask.

I saw them once and really wanted to avoid them like the plague.
