"An excellent Consultant"

About: Doncaster Royal Infirmary

What I liked

My son has been under the care of the Consultant since being a baby he is now 6 .He has acute asthma and has had lots of admissions to hospital especially when he was younger. Everytime we have left after the appointment i promise myself that i will tell everybody what a wonderful consultant he is,from our very 1st visit i actually felt we'd found a doctor that truly cared,we felt utterly respected and most of all listened too.He treats you like a professional of your own child which lets face it we are,we know them best, he may do the all important medical stuff but also gives the emotional support too,reassuring that we were on the right track to helping our son .Whenever we've been for appointments we know we may have to sit a while and he usually runs behind, but we don't mind as we know that this is because he will never rush you from asking anything.(Our first appointment went on forever as a distraught parent and not once did we feel rushed, but left feeling reassured and a little relieved)I can't say thank you enough for the support he's given and still giving to us.

Anything else?

THANK YOU
