I first met Dr Birtle at the Royal Lancaster infirmary, she explained the treatment I would receive in a clear and concise manner, and I found myself put at ease with her professionalism, enthusiasm and a very caring manner, she made sure that I understood things before I left the appointment, I have had numerous appointments and a session of radiotherapy plus a drug trial, and I found Dr Birtle was always there for me and willing to listen to what I had to say, an excellent Doctor.
After my diagnosis in Jan 2005 at FGH Mr. Wilson the consultant Urologist was full of praise for Dr. Birtle he was referring me to. Ever since then Dr. Birtle has been exemplary in her treatment provision of drugs, scans, radiotherapy and latterly chemotherapy. She is an excellent professional who dispenses guidance with a truly caring manner. Over the years of my treatment she has become an important person in my life (and my wife's). She is completely trusted and respected by us and we have often spoken to others of the high standard of care and professionalism she provides. We share a very close bond of Dr./Patient which has truly enabled me to enter into each recommended treatment in an open and trusting way. Not only that but she has shown great interest in my well being and in the quality of my life, always direct, cheerful and often humorous. We truly respect and admire her and are very happy to provide this critique. We feel so blessed to have Dr. Birtle as our oncologist.
I have had great care from Dr Birtle, from the very first appointment up to present day. She is most efficient and very caring, she has advised me and encouraged me through every stage of my treatment, and speak's to me and my husband in a way that is easy to understand .I am so glad that I am in Dr Birtle's care she is a really lovely person and I trust her completely.
Dr Birtle is an extremely good doctor, very easy to talk to and gives you the best knowledge about your illness, Dr Birtle and her team looked after me throughout my treatment for prostate cancer , i could find no fault at all throughout the whole process in Preston and Lancaster hospitals and will be ever grateful for the wonderful treatment i got. Thank you so much Dr Birtle
Dr Alison Birtle from day one, some four years ago as been kind, supportive,a great listener making you feel at ease, oh yeah and shes got warm hands !!!. joke aside what I thought was a nice touch is the correspondence when after a consultation she even mentioned things about holidays and family nothing to do with my recovery which in turn makes you feel she is listening wholeheartedly to you . A great person and Doctor Thank you and your team at Rosemere
