Dr Sheru George
5th November 2017
This Consultant consulted my 8 year old son on 4/11/17.
He presented as very abrupt, aggressive and unprofessional. He kept pointing his left forefinger at me in the presence of my son. I felt very threatened by his behaviour. I kindly asked him to refrain from this behaviour as it was intimidating my son.
He failed to provide a definitive diagnosis for my son. He rudely told my son right in his face that hIs hair loss was alopecia areata and has to live with it. When I enquiried about his blood test/DNA results he statedthat there were all normal. I asked him whether his thyroid function was normal and he replied "Oh it was missed actually" He was reluctant to make an apology as I had been informed that it would be a full blood test. Ithen approached the receptionist and requested for a print out of the test results and kindly provided these to me. I was informed by the receptionist that he had made decision to discharge my son.
The results showed a few abnormalities and deficiencies. The DNA antibodies swab read as still pending.
My child and I remain traumatised and confused by this Dr's behaviour and clinical practice. I have considered making a formal complaint to PALS and referring him to GMC and other registered professional bodies.
