Disappointed in doctor treatment

About: Wonthaggi Hospital / Emergency Department

Saw the doctor in emergency recently. I was so disgusted in them putting me down with everything I said. I was in agony and they made me walk outside and test my legs for a long distance. I was in agony when I left and I felt the doctor was constantly having a go at me medically. I've had 14 surgeries from a motor car accident a few years ago and I know what pain is and I know my limit in walking.

I went to have an ultrasound elsewhere and turns out I had a blood clot in right leg and that doctor at emergency turned me away.

I feel I will never come back to this hospital again.
