Dr Louise Bradbury
21st January 2015
I visited Dr Bradbury January 2014, this was the first time since 2009, so a little anxious. I didn't believe that my need was urgent as I had no fever or symptoms that you would link to being ill. However, I was given a telephone consultation and subsequently the doctor booked me an appointment at the surgery for first thing the following morning.
Dr Bradbury was calming and easy to talk to. Not once did I think she was judging me. She didn't just write out a sick note or hand out pills, instead she went through options with me regarding my issue and reassured me that I was doing the right thing. I left the surgery feeling supported and understood, and not simply a number. The appointment didn't feel rushed and I didn't feel under pressure. I felt that Dr Bradbury took an interest in my well being and wanted to make sure I would be ok once I had left the surgery.
I don't like to visit the doctors unless I really need to, hence not attending for last 5 years. I trust my doctor and I would take on board any advice that she gave me. Dr Bradbury took the time to understand me as a person and my reason for the appointment. I would certainly recommend this doctor to all, especially those who are nervous about visiting the doctors or feel that their need is not as great as others.
