Patient Comments (1)
in AL |
Very good bedside manner and will take all the time that a patient needs to answer ANY questions. Including drawings and explanations and prognosis. The new phone system is sometimes slower than the previous one at Trinity but his nurses assistant sometimes is in clinic, but she will get in touch ASAP.
