King George Hospital
Review of Rheumatology Outpatients, written by a patient
23rd July 2020
The nurses and admin staff for this clinic are very professional and provide exceptional care and support.
My one concern is with the actual consultant that I saw Dr S Navaratnam, I find that he has little, or no knowledge or experience with the APS conditon that I have been diagnosed with. Every time I ask questions he referes me to leaflets or suggests I buy publications by other doctors or check online. He is also keen for me to a drug to help the symptoms of this condition (Im not sure I have any symptoms) when I ask about symptoms he refers me back to the leaflets and so the neverending cyle begins. I always feel that I am wasting his time, especially when I say no to the drugs offered.
Is there a consultant that has more knowledge on the team? Maybe the team needs someone with more knowlege and understanding.
