"10/10 receptionists, great doctors"
"Very happy with all the work by the doctors and the girls at the desks. The best thing they've done for privacy for the patients" [regarding the front desk alterations that have happened recently]
"Today at 11:45am I came in to arrange for my ears to be checked prior to visiting the hearing services at the Hallamshire on the 26th October. Within minutes Tina checked to see that my ears were free from wax. Karen R, Karen, Jessica, Tina and the receptionists were so helpful and delighted to help me.
I have been registered at the Carterknowle Practice since 1965 (47 years). The professionalism of the doctors & staff have never failed to impress me”
“On Monday 22nd October, I collapsed on Abbeydale Road close to the surgery. I wish to thank Dr Green and the practice nurse Sue for their swift care and attention before an ambulance arrived and took me to the Northern General Hospital. I write because I feel strongly that their actions should be appropriately registered with the practice.
It is most reassuring that at a time when I was in need and my wife was in a state of great anxiety we were in the care of calm, professional individuals who took control of the situation in very inclement weather”
I would like the thank you [Dr Charles] and the other doctors who have looked after my self and my family (for four generations going back to the time of Dr Excel).
I just wanted to say thank you for the manner in which I was dealt with when I came into the surgery last week.
Because of the nature of my illness and feeling overwhelmed I became upset at the reception desk, I was immediately taken into a room away from reception and given privacy and the opportunity to express what I was suffering with in a dignified manner. I was also given a same day appointment to speak with the GP. I just wanted to put in writing and commend you for the training you obviously have received and how you value your patients.
Thank you for all your kindness on the phone and for going that extra mile for me and my husband- we really appreciate your warmth, good humor and very practical help.
This week I saw Dr Adeney and had an extremely positive experience. She was very bright, friendly and rigorous. I explained why I had come to the surgery to see a doctor and after listening to me she said “Before I sort out that problem, is there anything else you would like to tell me about, or talk to me about?” I have never had that attention given to me in 68years, I was quite dazzled. I felt she was genuinely interested in me as a person. She carried on with dealing with my case in a very professional way, thoroughly, empathically and kindly. She told me she had only just started at the Practice and I am sure she will be a great asset. Thank you, Dr Adeney for you care.
