Dreadful dr

Postby Jojostar » Fri Dec 16, 2011 5:19 pm

Hi,don't really know where to start my dr is awful so bad vie wrote a letter of complaint in against him,he rolls his eyes at me,and totally dismisses any symptoms I have.he is especially bad with people with depression,he wrote me a letter back denying it all too long to go into but came out in tears after he said my family were dead and to get on with it.anyway was discussing with another practise manager about changing to their surgery when she looked at my medication she said I'd b better off staying where I am,and just avoiding the dr in question.she said at her surgery they wouldn't be able to give me the same medication that I'm on now.am really stuck as I'm worried incase I'm left high and dry if I go sonewere else xx

Is there another Practice you can join, apart from the one who doesn't do your meds? Either that, or when you make an appointment at your surgery, just say that you don't want that particular GP. That's what I do with the Practice I'm in.

Sorry to hear what you're going thru with your "GP" jojo :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: I think you need to get in touch with our areas' PALS about this, seeing as your written complaint has been disregarded in such a contemptible way. Linky here to general overview of PALS http://www.pals.nhs.uk/

As for what to do about your treatment, as has already been said, you could stay where you are but avoid seeing this "GP", or you could try and find another surgery who will be able to continue with your treatment in an understanding and helpful way. Maybe ask if they have a particular doc who has experience of dealing with things like FM.

He should know that the way to gain respect, regard from people is to treat them all in a manner that he would expect to be treated. If you were to go in and be an abusive patient, I bet he'd be throwing everything possible at you to get rid of you, so he should expect that if he doesn't treat his patients in a suitable manner, then there will eventually be consequences to his actions :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

Time to get off my soapbox now, it's a bit high and I've gone a bit :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

I agree with Fluppy write to PALS and complain, did you address the letter to the practice manager or him??? as he shouldnt just write to you denying everything, you've made a complaint and it should be taken seriously. I can understand you not wanting to see him again and I totally agree that you should see someone else as you need to have faith in your doc. :fingerscrossed: you find a decent one and :hugs: :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

Denys, I addressed the letter to the practice manager and she passed it onto him without even reading it,I rang her when I got his reply in which he denied all knowledge of wrongdoing,she said she just passed it on,I told her I wasn't happy with his reply and that I'd hardly make it up and that my oh goes in with me now just in case.he had the cheek to imply that because I'm depressed that I imagined it and would be better finding a new dr as we've no trust between us.she said she would take it further with him..don't want him tarred and feathered just to be more sensitive to patients..he's definitely in the wrong proffession.my dad went to see him a few years ago after mum died and asked for some antidepressants as he was feeling so low..dr said I thought u were a man of faith take comfort from that..my dads not a man of faith (he's lost wife and 2children last lit of years)he wouldn't give dad anything he had to go and see another dr so it's not just me that has problems with him ..sorry for rant luv xxxx

this completely.

Why do uncaring people enter caring professions? Just because you've got the brains to be a Dr doesn't mean you should be one if you're uncaring and have no bedside manner!
