Dr Simon Tickle
3rd September 2020
Dr Tickle was the first clinician I met at Daventry GIC. He demonstrated patience, listened careful and clarified any area that needed it.
The consultation was comprehensive but felt paced, in fact it felt more like a social chat. There was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and I never felt pressured or rushed in anyway. In fact his consultation reminded me greatly of a GP tutor I once had who was highly respected for his clinic time keeping and clinical thoroughness.
The summary of the consultation given at the end was clear and precise and the subsequent written report matched what we had discussed.
Dr Tickle also ensured that the clinical question I had following the consultation was answered rapidly and continued to provide advise until my next appointment at the clinic.
It would be nice if, once entering the clinic's care, you had a 'managing clinician' that was a single point of contact for your entire care and coordinated the required input from other clinicians. Dr Tickle did, in essence do that until my second appointment.
