"Orthodontists impatient and patronising"

About: Milton Keynes Hospital

I was referred by my local dentist after various treatments were unsuccessful, my appointment at this department was laughable to say the least, i was referred again and was told this time by the consultant there was nothing wrong, although i had pictures of the occasional swellings and symptons documented.It took my dentist to write a complaint before i was to be seen again a few months later.

An appointment was given from last year to have an apioecetomy this year regardless of the fact that i have been left in agony all these months.

I had it done eventually only to get home to see the stitches, now am not a dr but i have a medical background and know a thing or two..my stitches had a knot at one end and sown just like you would a torn pair of trousers..i have photos. and in agony still.now am scared i will get infection. this particular person i find quite patronising and unsensitive given what they do, i willl not be going to see them again and will not recomend them at all. so disappointed..
