"My bad experience with a neurologist."

About: William Harvey Hospital

Anything else?

Seen neurologist at the hospital on 05/02/13, I was due to be seen at 9:00am but was seen at 09:45am, I feel that the Dr I seen took an immediate dislike to my partner and myself, the Dr hadn't even read my file and admitted this. The Dr said the NHS is stretched with no resources to treat my condition.

I was in there to get the results of my MRI scan to check if I was suffering from MS as suggested by my GP, the Dr was rude and did say that she had a look at my scans but nothing was wrong. The Dr was very abrupt and was saying that there is nothing wrong with me, this took 11 months to get this appointment only to spend about 7 minutes if that with her.

I was told that I have a body of a 6 million dollar man, which I do disagree with as I am suffering from something as the MRI scan shows.
