My Support Groups:
Dr Smith was wonderful. She had a brilliant empathetic manner and let me cry at her desk without feeling embaressed on more than one occasion. Her IBD specialist nurses, dietician and pharmacologist were always really helpful as there was usually quite a wait to get in to see Dr Smith herself. She knew about lots of cutting edge reseach and was happy to prescribe allopurinol for metabolite control and coleveslam for bile acid malabsorbtion which my new doctor didn't seem to have heard of at all. I had total faith in her and miss her dearly.

Rating:
5 / 5 Bedside Manner
5 / 5 Knowledgeable
5 / 5 Open to alternative treatments
4 / 5 Ease of accessibility
