Doesn't it give you faith in the system?! OMG I would have battered him!!! Silly silly man! Luckily you could both laugh about it!
But obviously someone who didn't know you AND didn't read your notes!
Hi Lynn, Hey, I know him, he misled you, he's not a Doctor, that's Richard Head ( known to his colleagues as Dick ) He wouldn't have understood your notes anyway, he's usually in charge of the tea trolley :-)Like Missy Mole said it's great when you can all laugh about it, you don't find much to giggle about while going through treatment. Does make you scratch your head and wonder about the NHS sometimes eh ?Best wishes, George & Jackie.
Once when I went for a check up after my mx on my left breast, it was a woman DR she told me to stand up she stepped back to look at me and said " isn`t that beautiful don`t you think" I said no I don`t think it is beautiful, oh she said I do.
And that was a woman Dr!!
There are some idiots out there pretending they know what they are talking about, I think some of them make it up as they go along.
It was good the nurse who was there had a sense of hummer.
OMG! There are too many of these twelve-year-old doctors out there... and yes, they may have medical qualifications but a bedside manner?... I don't think so! Being serious for moment, do you think you have grounds for a complaint? A little slap on the wrist for this idiot might bring him down to size. If you do want to take it further, contact the PALS (patient liasion service) which should have an office in the hospital.
I think the problem is that someone who isn't as on the ball as you could go away thinking that everything is ok and not go back for future appointments. I think something should be put in writing if only to protect the less able.
