Jeg opplever denne legen som lite interessert i annet enn å avslutte timen raskest mulig. Tror aldri jeg har vært der mer enn 10 minutter før jeg står utenfor døra og egentlig ikke helt forstod hva som skjedde. I en periode jeg virkelig var dårlig, ble jeg ikke tatt på alvor, og jeg har nesten aldri vært sykemeldt selv om jeg er godt voksen.
Hatt et tøft år.
Hun har stilt opp fantastisk.
Vist meg mye forståelse, støtter der det trengs, pusher der det trengs.
Legen lytter ikke, er uinteressert og virker fraværende under samtalen. Føler som mann sitter med en robot. Legen tar betaling for henvisning.
Flink til å henvise videre, men virker ikke interessert i noe annet en akkurat den ene problemstillingen jeg kom med som hovedsak. Har mange sammensatte lidelser og følte at det ikke var tid eller interesse fra legens side å følge det opp. Fikk aldri beskjed om å bestille ny time til oppfølging.
She is not good at diagnosing her patients symptoms which I believe it's the most important factor to evaluate a GP. No matter if your eyes hurts or you have problems in your lower back... the way of diagnosing your problem would be always a process of trail and error. So, you will end up going back and fort to see her for the same problem over and over without reaching to a conclusion. I have had pain in my lower back for almost 11 month, but neither got a diagnose from Dr. Bjørnstad nor got referral to a specialist until some weeks a go. After 11 month of pain just now she has referred me to a specialist (with another couple of month waiting time).
In addition, She doesn't have good ears to listen to you. I've got the impression that she doesn't care at all about your problems and your pain.
I have also experienced her doing mistakes regarding different issues. For example she didn't tel me that there is a problem in my blood test, despite the fact that laboratory had market it up as being out of the acceptable range. I just found it when I did an other test in my home country. When I brought it up to her, she tried to convince me with some made up stories about possible effect of my other medication on that specific blood element. When I checked that with an endocrinologist I found out there is absolutely no connection between them.
She is also a forgetful person in an extend that at least two times I had to spend 5 minutes of my time to explain specialists (which she had referred me to) that the problem which my GP has written about me, is actually not the reason that I am here because of that and probably my GP has written some one else problem but not me!
And last but not least thing about her is that she is not a friendly, empathic person at all. You feel she tries to get rid of you as soon as possible.
All these bad experiences lead to finally change my GP.
