Thank you both for seeing me on Monday afternoon and sending me to A&E. I had my appendix removed Tuesday morning. I'm still in hospital recovering.
You were both so clear, professional and kind and made a real difference for me. Dr Findakli, my call with you earlier in the day was very thorough and I knew I was in safe hands.
Thanks for being so awesome.

I had a conversation with a receptionist this morning who was very helpful with information regarding a telephone conversation with the Doctor. Everyone at Charles Hicks has always been so kind and helpful to me and my son in the past.

My wife and I had our Covid vaccination yesterday. We would like to thank all this involved from the parking attendants, administration staff and nursing staff. The whole visit went like clockwork, very well organised. Everyone was so friendly and cheerful. A big thank you again.

I'd like to say that Lesley gave my son a tetanus injection last night and despite it having been a long working day for Lesley, and our appointment being at 7pm, she was amazing.
My son was a bit nervous and Lesley completely put him at ease. I hope her "bedside Manner" is appreciated.

Today I had an appointment with Dr Helen Cheridjian, what a delight this Dr Helen was. I’m not one to attend the surgery on a regular basis but for the first time I felt like a valued patient, someone who genuinely cared about me and my welfare. I am so grateful that I had to make a comment. Thank you to the wonderful Dr, you listened, you did and above all I did not feel rushed. The NHS is pushed in all angles but at least I know I have a GP I trust. Well done to the partners for employing her.

I have been attending Charles Hicks for 2 years. Every time I have needed an appointment I have got one promptly at either of the surgeries, and staff try to accommodate them around my working hours. When I have had to be referred for further investigations this has been done promptly, most recently with getting a hospital appointment sorted the next working day, with a hospital appointment within 2 working days of initial GP appointment. Helpful support stuff. Medical staff take your concerns seriously. Prompt and efficient service. Couldn't ask for more.

I have lived in a number of different areas around the country and the Roman Gate surgery has been the best one I have been registered with for over 50 years. The staff are always friendly and helpful with nothing being too much trouble. The doctors and nurses are competent and supportive. In particular - I was in a car accident as a child which fractured my cervical vertebrae and damaged the spinal cord. It took 8 years before the problem was diagnosed and I had a cervical fusion. However, a I have aged arthritis has built up in that area to the point where I was starting to become paralysed. The surgery could not have been more helpful in referring me for a further operation.
