"Consultant in Ultrasound department ? competent"

About: Whipps Cross University Hospital

Had my scan in Sept. 2015 due to abdominnal pain. The ultrasonographer introduced themself as a consultant. Had my scan in less than 2 minutes. The Consultant sonograher even commented 'Oh, that was easy, we'll sent the report to your GP'.

I got the result from my GP saying that I have fatty liver one week after. The following day, I've got another letter from ultrasound department for another booking date. I wasn't sure what that was all about because the date was in 2 days time so I just came along. That time I had a scan with a a different member of staff who just mentioned their name. They did a thoughrough scan lasted for 10-15 minutes. When I received the result from my GP, they said that I have also kidney stones. So I'm pleased to come back for the scan again and thanks to that person who'd done it.
