"Poked and prodded and watched by medical students-Terrible time"

(as the patient),

I had a really bad time here. The consultant once strode in, introduced these vague students who worked with him, didn't bother to ask if I wanted them there.

Had to strip off in front of everyone, and then proceeded to poke and prod me, half naked, with one of them hanging his tongue out. They were also mute, so god knows how they actually were able to carry out their studies, what is the point of mute medical students?

I felt the consultant was downright arrogant.

I have written to this unit regards some questions re medication and am STILL waiting after five weeks, as I am for my operation, so am going tomorrow to see the manager there.
