"Dr Appointment"

About: Alpine House Surgery

I had an appointment with a particular doctor. I felt that he talked over me and didn't let me present my concerns/symptoms properly.

In short he doesn't appear to listen.

The appointment was not a discussion, it was a monologue.

As a result, I suspect he has sent me off for further checks that I have already had and I do not expect to have my symptoms diagnosed correctly and the right course of treatment put in place.

I have no confidence in his ability to understand what is troubling me as a patient.

He needs to slow, down, listen and understand.

I feel that I have been machine gunned with words and will not select an appointment with this Dr again.
