Have been a patient of this particular GP for many years. Although she may appear abrupt at times, her care is excellent.
I took my 3 year old daughter to see Dr Bayliss as she had been very sick for over a week. She was fitted into the urgent slot and seen the same day. My little girl was nervous about going to the 'doctors' but Dr Bayliss was very kind and put her mind at ease. She also stopped and listened to what my daughter had to say, even though it was about fairy princesses(!) - which was nice and made her feel listened to. Pleased to say she is now fully recovered and no longer worried about going to see the 'doctor'.
On some occasions I've found Dr Bayliss to be very helpful and kind, at other times (possibly when busy or running late), less so. I do, however, feel she has the patients interests at heart but you can feel quite rushed and pressured into keeping it very short. She just wants the executive summary and not the details. My overall experience is positive just maybe a smile hear or there would be reassuring.
Dr Bayliss goes by the book when it comes to prostate problems. She knows no more and says no more than what you can find in all the available literature. And the literature itself would leave a man in doubt as to whether his psa readings were of a serious nature. It was only my persistence that prompted Dr Bayliss to refer me to a specialist. Whereas she thought my psa reading of 4.6 was "normal", the specialist confirmed that my concerns were well-founded. A biopsy uncovered the presence of progressive cancer, and prompt surgery saved me from further serious complications. So it is better to trust your own instincts and take responsibility for your own life.
