Had to take my son (who has additional needs) with me to my appointment. Dr Faulkner was brilliant with him so I felt comfortable talking to her and not focusing on my son (who insisted he should touch everything) constantly. My son was rather taken with Dr Faulkner as he gave her a massive hug at the end of my appointment.
Dr Faulkner was very kind and attentive to me,spending time to listen & reviewing my meds.I am lucky to live near a really good GP practice where there is a walk in surgery & helpful staff on reception.
Dr Faulkner hasn't been at our local practice for long. I've seen her maybe 3 or 4 times. I can safely say she has always listened and taken what I have had to say seriously. She doesn't reach for her keyboard to prescribe before offering alternative ideas. She is friendly, respectful and makes you feel at ease so that you can open up to discuss things that you may not have initially come into to discuss. Having moved around the country a lot, I have had varying levels of care from my GP's over the years, so feel reasonably well qualified to provide this review. Needless to say I am more than happy to have this lady as my GP, I always make sure I can book an appointment with her. I am quite old fashioned and believe that the relationship you build with your GP is essential. I would highly recommend Dr Bronwyn Faulkner.
