"Excellence of doctor attending to me"

About: Royal Hallamshire Hospital

I was referred by my GP for what was suspected to be my third TIA. Following my subsequent interview on L floor with a doctor (7072720), they quickly ascertained that I had not had a TIA but in fact had suffered a complex partial seizure (epilepsy). Their consultant confirmed this and I was started on medication. The doctor demonstrated exemplary skill and should be congratulated.
