"Unsympathetic doctor at qmc"

About: Queen's Medical Centre / Cardiology

(as the patient),

After experiencing palpitations most of my adult life i was put on medication to control them. After suffering a really bad attack i went to the qmc emergency room and was subsequently admitted to ward b3. the nurses were very nice and my treatment was ok, Then i was seen by a doctor who said to me,, you must stop coming to the hospital with these palpitations!!! He was patronizing and very rude, making me feel extremely silly, whilst i do appreciate that the palpitations are not life threatening (albeit very uncomfortable), i did not deserve to be spoken to in this very rude and uncaring manner, i am just an ordinary person and was very scared by these awful symptoms,which were worse than i ever had before.

This doctor said to me at one point,, hearts kill people you know,, no kidding sherlock my father had a heart transplant!!!!!
