I have just returned from the doctors i have felt worse all week and put it down to the weather as its cooler today I tried to ring the Chest nurse but was told that in view of my problems I have to go straight down to see the doctor. I waited an 1 hour and 15mins. I went in to see him explained my problem he then asked what made me think I have Bronchiectasis I said the specialist had told me and the long story he then told me to shut up while he read my notes as he was trying to help me. After him taking two phone calls and making one and telling about another patient he listened to my chest and told me I have an infection.
I asked about being referred to another specialist as I have not seen mine for well over a year and apparently he has left the hospital.He said he wouldn't do it as I had been invited there for an emergency consultation.I asked why I was getting worse when the specialist had said there was no reason why I should he told me I had not understood anything the specialist had told me but failed to elaborate.
I also needed a letter just simply stating I have Bronchiectasis & Alpha 1 I didnt dare ask!
I left his office and told the receptionist that I hadnt dared ask him after he had berated me and she said she would write a note to ask another doctor. The doctor then came out and grabbed the note from the receptionist and gave me a big long lecture in front of the whole surgery about how good he had been to me inviting me to come for an appointment the receptionist said is there any need and he marched off and then came back and dumped the note.
I came back feeling so much worse stressed and unable to breath as well as my infection and no clue what is happening to me.
Has anyone any experience of going private just to get some medication sorted and some information how much would this cost?
.I told the doctor the only information I had got was from the internet and he told me I was wasting my time.
