Posted by Felt belittled (as ),
My girlfriend & myself were told by our local GP to attend the Emergency Department at the Esperance Hospital as the GP was booked out. After a 3/4 hour wait she was finally seen by a doctor who we felt totally belittled us both. The doctor totally contradicted our own GP's advice that Pneumonia is contagious as well as several articles on the internet which also state that Pneumonia is contagious. We were both that taken aback with what we felt was this doctor's arrogance, that we were speechless. My girlfriend suffers from social anxiety & because of this doctor's attitude she clammed up telling him there was little wrong with her just to get away from him. In my opinion, this doctor needs have some compassion & bedside manners before his rudeness & arrogance results in a patient dying.
