So upsetting experience. I took my daughter to Croydon A&E since she had intermittent chest pain with breathing problem since last 48 hours. Got initial enquiry and then waited for couple of hours before seeing a doctor. Doctor checked her chest and said - chests is clear, and oxygen level is reported as normal. So she is medically fit. And asked us to go home in 3-4 minutes of seeing her. She was still having pain and breathing heavily while being checked by him, but he still insisted that she is fit. When as a concerned dad, I tried to explain that she is suffering and something might be wrong, he got offended and responded rudely. We left A&E in 5 minutes. Apparently, my daughter is still suffering from chest pain on 3rd consecutive day, and just been sent back from school. Not sure how to react on ignorant and rude doctors.
