I saw Dr Peter Haynes, Consultant Rheumatologist , on 9/03/2018 while he was working as a locum at Rochdale Infirmary, Lancashire. WOW! This doctor is definitely a one-off & I can't praise him highly enough. My visit was one of my six-monthly appointments & I was expecting to receive a brief chat & my annual steroid injection. NO CHANCE! After listening to me answer his questions & an examination of my poor, arthritic feet, leg joints & back, , he declared emphatically that he would not give me a steroid injection as he strongly believed it would do me more harm than good. He also stated that i was opiate (Tramadol) dependent & insisted that I stop my daily 300mg dose of time release Tramadol capsules in favour of a withdrawal programme. All this was followed by manipulation treatment to my dysfunctional spine & surrounding tissue massage. Diet advice followed & I have put into practice all his recommendations. WE NEED MORE DOCTORS LIKE THIS! He is very straight-talking but cares about his patients & goes the extra mile in his work. I constantly research health improvement & my own health problems, & the information & advice I was given by this amazing doctor is all spot on according to what I have learned. By the way, TIME WAS NOT OF THE ESSENCE & he spent an hour with me. If you do read this review, Dr Peter Haynes, then a BIG THANK YOU from me! ;)
Found his attitude and general approach totally appaling.After waiting to see a so called specialist you expect good sound advice and diagnosis, he is sadly lacking in all these areas. His advice was complete nonsense and at times rude. Cannot believe we were getting remenders to go back and see him - as if! It is only good for all concerned that he has gone - a bad apple in every barrel!
I am so sorry to discover that Dr Haynes has retired. In my 30 odd years of having this condition and seeing different rheumatologists he was like a breath of fresh air; he took me seriously, was straight talking and very approachable. I hope it's not going to take another 30 years to find someone as good.
Hi, I went to see Dr Peter Haynes not so long ago. It was regarding my medication that I was on as I had some worries. I walked in and he asked how I was as usual. But when I started to go into detail about my concerns he was just telling me to stop being so stupid and to ignore what I had been told. He reduced me to absolute tears and let me leave there crying my eyes out. He's a terrible listener and doesn't cat about his patients. I have not long transferred from the children's department so tonne treated like this was horrible. So glad that he's retired. Terrible doctor.
I saw Dr Peter Haynes rheumatologist in Bronglais Hospital last autumn regarding my health conditions. Without going into detail here, I would like to say that I found his attitude towards me totally unprofessional, I ended up in tears, and cried all of the way home due to him not listening to what I was saying, and also due to his condescending manner towards me. I have wanted to put in a complaint, but still feel too upset about what happened during the consultation, needless to say I have no desire to ever see him again. When it takes you months to get an appointment, you do not expect this treatment. In contrast, other consultants I have seen, have always been very professional, understanding and always listen to what you are saying about your health conditions.
