What are my rights as a patient? Doctor refused to see me
Now : the receptionist changed her wordings, acted very unprofessionally and told me the doctor cannot see my daughter because I am too late. Even after confronting her that she gave me a different answer over the phone, the receptionist replied rudely "Doctor is leaving early today and they have there personal life too" - while my poor 8yr old is standing there, crying in pain. Even after requesting a few times I was not allowed to see the doctor and was told to go to another walk in clinic or go to emergency hospital.
can a doctor refuse to see you - even when they are open and have plenty of time?
Can they simply refuse a patient in cry pain because Doctor felt like going home early? I am wondering as a patient what are the patients rights? what does the law say? is there a complaint body for these type of slack/unprofessional behavior?
