Comments from patients (Nov feedback):

  • I still am very nervous about joining your surgery. I hate change, autistic spectrum I have may increase that, but the doctor I saw on Wednesday was lovely. She was kind, compassionate, gave wonderful advice, really made a horrible health situation seem easy and dealt with on a medical level. I am to get my prescription done in time working days before I run out to save me, and have it at reception ready. That is so kind and easy for both parties. She seemed as though I could tell her anything, and I told her a lot! She wrote a lovely letter for me in consultation to help in case needed and I am liking this surgery more and more every time after the trauma of the disgusting surgery I was with before. Reception seem nice, they helped initially a lot and then this latest and second appointment I didn’t speak much to them but they do call on time when an item is left/due and I really believe they care. Thank you. I am very worried I am prematurely liking this surgery but so far it’s gone from good to wonderful!
