What could be improved
Consultants attitude! I have had appointments with him before, two years ago, and found him exactly the same then.The consultant failed to refer me to a consultant with whom I could discuss my vision problems,but instead chose to refer me to a neuropsyciatrist,inferring that as nothing obvious was wrong, it must all be in my head.
Sadly an MRI scan failed to show 'obvious' signs of why my vision is deteriorating,and I have other neurological symptoms increasing. Consultant was disinterested,abrupt and wholly unsympathetic.I was treated as a nuisance, and felt embarrassed that I had bothered someone about my negligable symptoms.
