"Rude doctor"

About: Kettering General Hospital

I recently went to have a breast examination where the doctor basically told me there was nothing wrong with me. After this they proceeded to tell me that I needed to "stop eating KFC, McDonalds, and chocolate", that I "lacked exercise" and that I should "stop smoking and drinking". if the doctor had taken an ounce of effort and time to read my notes, they would have known that I had actually lost 9 stone! I am healthier and fitter than I have ever been! This doctor was so rude and just wouldn't listen to me. It makes me think that if I were to ever find a lump again, that there would be no point going. Not impressed at all. In fact it left me feeling deflated about all the hard work that I had actually accomplished. Definitely wouldn't recommend this doctor to anyone!
