"Upset patient"

About: Seacroft Hospital

After calling me in 45 minutes late the Doctor would not listen to anything I had to say and just spoke over the top of me. I left my appointment in tears from the way they spoke to me. They just told me about my lifestyle diet and excercise and presumed that because my husband is a personal trainer I'm over excercising. That's his job not mine, I don't even have a gym membership. When I tried to explain my lifestyle to the doctor they would not listen. They did the same thing on every matter discussed during our appointment so I have left the appointment now feeling ive gone backwards and not forwards. I would recommend listening to your patients in future.
