I feel my Aspergers diagnosis was wrong

I recently had my diagnosis for Aspergers and I was shocked that I was told I met the criteria. How do I challenge the outcome? I don't want to speak to the same people who diagnosed me as I feel this will be somewhat biased.

It's gone on my medical records now and I don't agree with the report which I was given. How would I go about getting reassessed?

My diagnosis would given my the NHS Health in Mind.

Just that I have problems dealing with social situations because I'm shy and not very confident. I took a bunch of tests and past them fine apart from a test where me and the psychiatrist had to tell each other about a real life story.

Apparently I didn't raise a question or question the truthfulness of her story because she said she saw a skeleton in her wardrobe but I didn't realise at the time it was a story based on truth. I thought it was just a random story... and so they said i'm lacking communication skills and stuff.

I said I like routines and doing certain things certain ways but that's just because it's more efficient that way. I don't know but I think my personal life, the way I live life influenced the decision they made... I don't have any friends either which I think pointed towards aspergers too.

How can I go about getting a second opinion but not from that same people?
