Dr. Lamotharan really listened to me and took time to explain any questions I had. She also has a great positive energy and makes sure that I received the best care possible.
I believe Dr Lambotharan saved my life. I visited the medical centre in early August after three days of feeling very unwell. This was most unusual for me as I am a healthy and fit adult male. Dr Lambotharan did not know what was wrong with me and suggested I had food poisoning. Being trained as a microbiologist myself I was sceptical but I went along with it. She recommended I go home and take some paracetomol and she would call me later that day to check up on me. I am extremely grateful she did call back. She initially left a voicemail for me and thankfully called again 10 minutes later to check up. By this time I was extremely unwell and upon informing her I was feeling worse than ever she advised I get to St. Mary's Hospital A&E immediately. She asked if I was ok to get there on my own which I replied I could. However, I went to get up and discovered I was unable to move. I called an ambulance and was duly admitted to St. Mary's and diagnosed some two hours later with sepsis. I spent a total of 8 days in an isolation room in St. Mary's in what I can only describe as some of the darkest days of my life. The only consolation was that I was being kept in the same hospital where Alexander Fleming discovered penicillin. If it was not for the professional follow-up of Dr Lambotharan I might well not be here today. I could easily have just slipped away in my sleep that night instead, unable to move or call for help.
