"Disgusted at the Doctor's behaviour"

About: Heartlands Hospital

I took my elderly 74 year old grand mother to the Diabetes and endocrinology centre. The nurse who checked my grand mother was very polite and caring. The doctor on the other hand could at least learn some manners in how to treat elderly patients. They were rude, impolite and very unreasonable. I am disgusted at this doctor who should learn some manners and should not think that it is alright to be rude to patients. Terrible.
