Dr Jurate Venteriene
31st October 2017
This doctor carried out my extremely painful colonscopy. She firstly did not explain the procedure. I had to actually ask her about it before signing the consent form, which she just handed to me and told me to sign. I opted to have the procedure without sedation because this hospital only offered IV sedation and no Entonox and I didn't want to be at the hospital for 5 hours. I had IV painkillers that were not effective. I felt every movement not helped by the doctor's abruptness and constantly dismissing my pain, instead telling me to turn over while I screamed out in pain or blaming my "loopy colon". She also seemed to be annoyed when I asked her to stop while I caught my breathe for a minute before continuing. Hearing that "you are safe" is not helpful for patients experiencing uncontrollable pain. The only good service was from the postoperative nurses who gave me instructions and who were sympathetic when I vomited after the procedure from the pain and from having not eaten for 36 hours. I would definitely not recommend this doctor.
