Dr Richard Burkimsher
28th May 2019
Dr Richard Burkimsher has been our GP for over six years. He is a kind, humane, listening and caring doctor. Very few doctors focus on hearing the patient's views and concerns in the way he does. He does not override the patient's wishes but gently discusses options. His calmness and humbleness reassures even an anxious and distressed person. He runs early morning and late evening surgeries. If asked to call back, he does it promptly.
If the practice allowed, he would offer a longer than 10 minute consultation for more complicated issues. Wonderful man, every inch of his tall stature worth gold!
