Miss S S    on 10 Aug 2018             FOC New Patient Consultation The practice is nice and conveniently located with parking spaces for clients. Dr Colin is very kind and listens to your questions in a calm and professional manner. His wonderful smile also speaks for his work and he is encouraging at all times. The only reason why I didn't put 'extremely likely' is because all my Italian/French/Spanish/German/Portuguese friends would find it slightly inconvenient that they would have to come back and pay for 2 separate appointments in order to deal with one matter. I appreciate each country/system has its own way of dealing with treatments; however, in other countries, both the diagnosis (with careful tests + x-rays) AND the treatment for eg. gums/fillings/any 'one-appointment' issue are dealt within one appointment. This brings the costs down as the x-rays and diagnosis is seen as being part of the same matter (i.e. you go to the doctor to be diagnosed and treated, not just diagnosed). You may need to come back for further treatments/further sessions of the same treatment, but you are never asked to pay for just being diagnosed and not treated. Hope this makes sense. Dr I C    on 10 Aug 2018             Hygiene Examination The practice is very professional, clean and relaxing.
