I find the statements made by previous reviewers to be extremely accurate. Appointments with her are not easy to come by as she is very popular for both her manner, capacity to listen to and treat patients. She is empathetic and friendly (with a great humour!) but remains professional. I would highly recommend Dr. Clayton.
Dr Clayton is the outstanding Practitioner at Goldsworth Park. You may have to wait a bit longer to see her, but the wait is well worth while. She never rushes a visit and is keen to know all about you and your visit to make sure that she is fully aware of the reasons for your visit. Her happy friendly manner is a joy and you leave her consultation knowing that you have had the best possible attention and care. I cannot praise this lady highly enough and have been privileged to have been her patient.
I have know Dr Clayton for a long time(10 years?) and I always try and book an appointment her. Dr Clayton always gives the impression that she cares about you and has a warm and friendly manner backed up by an obvious in depth experience as a GP. The important thing is that I feel I can trust her judgement and more importantly she has the knack to discuss any treatment without the "Doctor knows best approach "common in the past. Dr Clayton always discusses my results with me as she knows that I understand what they mean.The relationship I have with her is something I value. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone but selfishly as she is very difficult to get an appointment with and she is one of the best at the practice I would not like everyone to know!
I have a very complex medical history and I have been so glad to have Dr Clayton as my GP. My husband and I are about to retire to Dorset and one of the reasons NOT to leave Woking was that we are very reluctant to leave the care that she has provided for many years. I always feel better for having seen her and it is always worth the wait. She is very popular and gives each patient sufficient time to talk through their worries. I hope I am fortunate enough to find another GP who will give such excellent support.
Dr.Clayton is genuine, warm, empathetic and compassionate, and highly professional. Great sense of humour, listening and problem solving, and very knowledgeable. I am a long term patient with a complex collection of mental and physical problems and her care has made a huge difference to my survival.
