"What is with Dermatology"

About: Addenbrooke's Hospital

The dermatology department is incredibly poor - they try to fob you off and do not follow correct procedure in deciding on appropriate treatments. the specialists lack any bedside manner, understanding or professionalism they should assess treatment not only based on symptoms but impact on quality of life, the specialist we saw did not and made an inaccurate review. They make you feel guilty for trying to get help.
