Ray Vella has been my GP for as long as he has been at the practice (so over 20 years). I've been a paraplegic for nearly 40 years and have had other serious health problems (eg, heart failure). Doctor Vella is one of those special people who recognise that the patient can have areas of knowledge about their condition that complement his professional perspective. Therefore he listens, thinks, deducts and then recommends. I don't like going to the doctors but as I have to he's a doctor I'd recommend in a heartbeat.
