"Treated like a child"

Went to the walk in centre as I was unable to get appointment at my GP reception staff really helpful however I found the clinical staff that dealt with me rude and condescending. When I explained my symptoms I was basically brushed off and told I was confused with period pain. I am a fully grown women I know the difference.

The clinician spoke to me like I was a child and like I didn't know what was going on with me!! Unprofessional
