I had a similar experience when I registered with this surgery when I first moved to the area in 2006.
The staff were rude and found it annoying to fit me in around their conversation. In addition, a young couple who spoke limited english were in the waiting room with me trying to get to see a doctor for their baby who had been vomiting all weekend and the staff were incredibly dismissive and bascially told them that the doctor was too busy. Fortunately at that point one of the doctors actually came through the waiting room and took them straight in. This has been my ongoing experience of this surgery, the doctors are ok but also fairly disinterested and everytime I ring for an appointment it is an ordeal.
I would recommend you call the Princess Street
Group Practice who are taking new patients. They are very pleasant on the phone and have about 8 doctors including 4 female doctors.
