"Visit to lung clinc due to sleep apnoea "

About: Musgrove Park Hospital

(as the patient),

On visits to the Lung Centre for sleep apnea I found the doctor very abrupt and patronising towards me. I also felt some technicians are not always helpful when asked questions. There is also a long wait even thought you're given a timed appointment.
