My story is about a doctor who I felt didn't want to help me. I caught a very bad cough in hospital. One of the nurses heard me coughing, so she said to me do you want to see a doctor? So I said yes thank you. So one hour went by and this doctor came to me and said - how can I help. So I explained to the doctor that I had a very bad cough. I believe they said to me - look at all we have done for you since you have been here and they started to show me this big list full of tests that they did on my heart. So I said, "Thank you for that, but I am not speaking about my heart, I am talking about this cough that I have just caught". I believe the doctor's reply was - what do you want me to do about it? So I said, 'And you're a doctor. I would like you to check my chest". With that the doctor just got up and walked out and I did not see them again. So I went around to where the doctor's office was and said that I was going to report them. They ask me why, and I told them they had no bedside manners. When the doctor ask me why and I told them what they had said to me, I felt they started to deny it all. So that was one experience.
