As other reviewers have stressed, Dr Tomson is an excellent listener, and has the ability to explain things simpley and clearly, he follows up all consultations with a summary letter which I found particularly helpful. I had been worried that perhaps I was being unreasonable in my search to sort out my hypertension, (having achieved 3 score years and ten..) he reassured me not only that my attempts to get my BP down were reasonable, but that eventually we would acheive this aim, which thanks to his suggestions as to alternative medication has been the case. One hears so much negative publicity about our NHS Dr T represents all that is great about the NHS, competent, knowledgeable and person centred.
Dr Tomson explained everything very clearly. He listened to my questions carefully and answered fully. I was very grateful to receive a letter from him detailing what was said and what would happen. He has a gift for explaining complicated things in simple terms. I am very pleased to be in his care.
Dr Tomson was very specific about my condition. He advised me to check with my GP about increasing my Bisopropol to 10 mg given the history angina and ischaemic heart disease as well as high blood pressure. I wasn't too keen at first but I will make an appointment with my GP after the holiday period to discuss the matter. Mr. J Malcolm CRT/IG/2064526H NHS No. 4225445178.
Took time to listen, consultation wasn't rushed. Left feeeling very hopefull about my treatment and future treatment options.
