"Senior Radiologist"

About: Helston Community Hospital

I am currently of a position where I am in and out of hospital a lot due to renal failure & MARFANS, and I was having an ultrasound from a very unprofessional senior radiologist who couldn't care less about their manner. I am 15, and they said that seeing as I was unattended by a parent then they were going to treat me as an adult (sorry if I don't want my father in there whilst I'm half-naked... and my mum can't exactly join me in her state) But anyway, they called me a timewaster and said that my GP was "stupid and doesn't know what he's talking about" my GP is a girl, and the only person I actually trust. They left me in tears, saying that if I wasn't going to do exactly as I was told in my appointment letter, then I may as well not have bothered coming... I did do what was instructed. On the very few occasions that I have sought medical help from Helston Cottage Hospital, I have been greatly let down: Got hit by a car; oh no, just go home and you'll be fine, twelve months later and I'm still in agony Dislocated all my fingers; sorry, I'm not touching that Renal failure; get emotionally abused Unfortunately, I need to return there tomorrow, but I will be making my feelings of the matter quite clear.
