I Want Great Care. Feedback to date

I had the thorough pleasure of working for Dr Bonnington for 3 weeks and can honestly say she is one of the most genuine, thoughful, pleasant, hard-working doctors I have ever met. She always gives patients the time they need, goes on considerable numbers of home visit for even day-to-day problems when they fit in around her surgeries and she always goes that extra mile; she’ll phone the consultant to chase up a result while the patient waits in the room rather than making the patient wait for the letter, phone up patients to see how they are after being discharged from hospital and is just plain lovely. Definately a recommended Doctor.
