"Concurrent abdominal pain undiagnosed"

About: Royal Perth Hospital / Pain Clinic Shenton CAMHS St John of God Midland Hospital

(as the patient),

I was seeing a particular doctor, but all he seemed to care about was his reputation. I used to see the top pain specialist in Perth and he treated me with great respect, so I want to see a different pain specialist if possible.

Dear Undiagnosed,

Thank you for your feedback and I apologise that you were left feeling that addressing your concerns was not the primary goal of the doctor.

We would be happy to discuss alternative ways forward with you personally - if you are happy to do so can I please ask that you call us on Royal Perth Hospital Bentley Group Consumer Engagement Unit: (08) 9224 1637 or rpbg.feedback@health.wa.gov.au

Alternatively can I please ask if you would consider discussing your concerns with your general practitioner and the potential for referral to another clinician.

Kind regards

Dr Aresh Anwar

Executive Director

Royal Perth Bentley Hospital Group
