“I aim to provide the highest standards of care. Private consultations are offered at Thornbury
and Claremont Hospitals. My service is patient centred with consultation times offered inside
and outside of normal working hours making it accessible and convenient for the patient. I offer a personal and individual service with generous length of appointment times to enable all
patient’s concerns and worries to be addressed. Reassuring patients as quickly as possible
about the underling nature of their problems is a key goal of this service. This approach leads to very high levels of patient satisfaction”.
