Dr Lara Walford
21st August 2018
I have been a patient at Selsdon Park Medical Practice since I was a teenager; I'm now 37. This practice is first class. If you phone in the morning, you generally get an appointment that day. I have also appreciated how swiftly my 4 year old son has been seen whenever he has been poorly. I saw my own GP in the summer and I asked for advice in relation to contraception. He (Dr Kelvin) was very thorough and suggested that I also book to see Dr Walford who specialises in family planning. Dr Walford is absolutely lovely. Dr Kelvin had given me a website address to look at so that I could make an informed decision prior to my appointment with Dr Walford. Dr Walford completely puts you at ease. She thoroughly explained every option available and took into account my age and personal circumstances. I decided, having looked at the website, and after listening to the doctors, to opt for a Mirena coil. I had this fitted yesterday by Dr Walford. Assisting her was Nicki Gridley who was equally as lovely. Dr Walford explained everything, including after care and various things to expect. This immediately made me feel relaxed and the coil fitting was not as painful as I had expected. I was treated with dignity and respect. I highly recommend Dr Walford.
