"Consultant seemed to be in another world!"

About: Leicester General Hospital

Anything else?

Hi my name is Sabbir Khalifa, i went to see a Dr today for my severe feet pain at the Genaral Hospital.I was asked information about issues with my feet he was listening too but then he took the easy route after doing a few test that i had already had with the Dr,at the Sports Medicine department,at the same hospital where one member of the clinic team of the consultant saw me who requested me to go to this neurolagy as my feet is to do with the nerves.The neuro consultant at the General did not have a clue about what the cause was and in my opinion he has taken the easy route and has blamed my feet pain is due to my diabeties even though i told him the diabeties consultant at LRI hospital has said my feet pain are not due to my diabeties.I also have an illness called (SARCOID) even the consultant at Glenfield Hospital has told me my feet pain is not to do with the sorcoid.It has been almost a year that i have been having severe feet pain,and in the pas 5 weeks its got so pain full i am limping when i walk and my pain is constant,the neuro dr i feel needed to read my notes with his eyes and not just roll the pages to get a better idea of why i had been referred this neuro clinic, I would not recommend this hospital for anybody who may have neuro medical issues , please asked to be reffered to any other hospital.Thanks for reading.
