The worst doctor's experience I have ever had with Dr. Crawford. - Unfriendly and unapproachable from the beginning - Did not listen to what I told her regarding previous doctor’s opinions about my condition - Undermined and patronised me when I outlined the preventative methods I have taken for my ailment, which were all specialist recommended - Prescribed me medication containing ingredients that I specifically said I couldn’t have (and that had previously made my condition worse) - Appointment was rushed and I felt as though I was inconveniencing her for being there with the consultation only lasting 5 minutes and coming to no obvious solution or conclusion Doctor’s have an obligation to ensure patients feel comfortable and heard and this doctor failed to do both. Whilst I understand people have off days (which I can only assume this must have been), it is no excuse to disregard a patient who has come to you for help. Deplorable behaviour.
I am on holiday in Edinburgh with my daughter and had to make an appointment for her today. We were told to go in for 4.30pm, however we were seen before. The doctor was lovely and put my mind at rest.

As a tourist in need of a doctor in emergency, I obtained an appointment in less than 2 hours. All staff were so friendly. Didn't have to pay anything !
