"Poor service from Urologist at Darenth Valley"

About: Darent Valley Hospital

(as the patient),

I was seen recently by a urologist at Darent Valley Hospital, though when I say 'seen' I am using the term loosely. They were over 1 hour late in relation to appointment time which on it's own is not the end of the world, but when I did go in to see the specialist, I was not allowed to speak, because each time I opened my mouth he talked over me.

In fact I think all in all I probably uttered 10 words max. He then had the nerve to tell me he knows that I probably think he is rushing, and that I am right - he is rushing because have you seen the queue out there?

How despicable! I was disgusted. Without any testing, scanning, or even asking me for my symptoms etc, he then told me after 3 minutes of being in there that he is going to send me for an operation.

What basis was this decision made on?

He then said it may or may not work and may not last.
