"Transferring to another hospital."

About: Colchester General Hospital

I have suffered with Crohn's Disease since 2007 and in such I have seen many doctors for this at multiple hospitals. The consultant has the worst bedside manner of any doctor I have ever met, they are rude and dismissive. I leave every appointment distressed by the fact that I am not listened too and am not treated. I am not treated as an equal, I am spoken down to and treated with no respect whatsoever. Because of this consultant I am transferring away from this hospital, I deserve better care than they can give me. I urge any other patients with Crohn's Disease to seek other doctors.
