Explanation
Bedside Manner
An excellent experience throughout. I was seen in a timely fashion and received a thorough history taking, examination, explanation of my symptoms and treatment plan. I had investigations and a joint injection carried out within 2 weeks of the initial consultation which has successfully relieved my symptoms. My follow up consultation gave me reassurance that I could receive more treatment as required. The only slightly negative experience is that I have been sent emails with a texted password and I am unable to open these. Although I have replied to ask for help, I have received no response so these emails are useless to me at present.
