What our patients say

"The doctor was very friendly and approachable. He answered all my questions. The waiting area was very nice, the building is gorgeous and the downstairs reception is very impressive and professional."
"Good experience, very professional. The building was immaculate, very modern with plenty of natural light. The receptionist welcomed me and showed me to the waiting area, she talked me through what details I needed to provide, she was polite and friendly. The waiting room was smart and comfortable. The clinician was reassuring and very attentive, I felt very comfortable and it was completely refreshing not to be rushed in and out like I’m used to with my local GP."
