After suffering from horrible experiences with my previous two surgeries and suffering from hate and bullying I decided too change GPs again.
This time I chose an Asian only GP practice too prevent a repeat of the previous experiences having my hopes high and smiling I have made an informed decision.
This GP of mine came across as a promising and a caring young GP who had my best interests at heart. After a couple of appointments I'm all jolly and really happy about the way the GP has been dealing with me besides one issue which I will not detail. It was and is a small hurdle which is easy to overcome.
Symptoms flare up I pop along to the GP and ask him why had my neurology referral letter been cancelled to which he replied "I do not find any evidence that would warrant a refferal to a neurologist."
I burst out frustratingly have you even been through my medical records? GP "Yes, calm down I have but there are so many pages I might have missed something" I ask the GP what would he do if I presented him documented letters that would support a referral to neurology, "I will get one done straight away"
I rebook an appointment after going through my medical records taking out information which he might find of interest. Upon reading through the letters he starts bashing my previous neuros for failing to take into consideration my diagnosed conditions and he would make a referral immediately detailing everything, making sure I get seen by a specialist because he certainly felt the conditions were as a result of ms or another demyelinating disease.
I asked him, how could I go away from this appointment knowing that I am in good hands and should not consider changing to another surgery. "As a fellow muslim I would not do this with you, I swear to god. I promise"
He convinced me he had my best interests and I left the appointment feeling happy again. Back at home like always I made notes on how the appointment went and was reflecting on whether I was in good hands? whilst I was making notes about the appointment and reflecting on what was discussed at the appointment it then dawned on me that this GP is also a racist/biased if he only has muslims best interests at heart how could this man possibly be a great GP and have patients best interests at his heart.
This paints a picture to me that if I was not a muslim I would probably not even be seen or be treated with dignity and respect. After requesting a copy of the referral letter he sent to neurology I ended up cancelling my neurology referral.
I am not going to give up just yet, I am sick and tired of these Jekyll and Hyde muppets who are supposed to have our best interests at heart. Instead they are just contempt with making out lives a misery.
I guess it's easy to be wise after the event.
