The immunology of the HUG is horrible. I was outright ridiculed, told incorrect things and not helped in any way. Meanwhile, my immunological issue has been diagnosed by others. (Btw, I feel sorry for... more the doctors working in the atmosphere of the immunology...)
Reply to the suggestion of the HUG that I should seek mediation:
So many people complain about the leading doctor whom I met, that mediation for an individual case is not the right measure here. The HUG is in charge: organisational change is needed.
All people from the receptionists to the nurse taking the blood work fast, professional and motivated. The only exception, but big exception that I have experienced: the doctors :( :(
Its... more tricky: big smile when receiving you, kind wording, always polite. But when it comes to actions & decisions such as which tests are taken and discussing options then suddenly all opposite: total minimalism, nothing is possible, new med things are not known.
why?? is there something wrong with this hospital? I cannot imagine people become doctors in order to not be useful. I can imagine though that they are monitored to prescribe as little tests as possible. And that innovative new things are blocked from above?
Honestly, I am sorry to say this, but I have experienced the HUG to be less useful than a general practitioner.
Thanks for my brother Serge Gotko! You have saved his life and thanks to your efforts his condition is improving. I am very grateful to all of you , especially to Doc.Andrea Bartolli, Doc Gregory Zeganek... more and all the nurses who have helped and are helping him now to learn to move and for your care .Let you be healthy!Hug each of you!
