"This kind of attitude doesn't help"

Went to Yorkhill Hospital Glasgow, because we where concerned that our 4 yr old who had a sudden nose bleed may have got something stuck up his nose, as 4 weeks previous he had same thing and had a piece of lego toy embedded in nasal passage and has recently been having trouble with his ears. We saw a Dr who examined him not very thorough and told us his ears where fine and couldn't see anything up his nose, but we had just received antibiotic from GP 2 hrs before as his ears and throat where inflamed.
We asked him a few questions that didn't seem to go down well because as he walked away to phone about getting an app for ear nose and throat specialist, he was shaking his head and when he came back, I questioned him on his attitude, he apologised, but I told him it was not good enough as he had a mother who was very concerned about her childs' welfare and had every right to ask questions. With this kind of attitude it surely does not help child or mother.
