Dr Shakespeare is a Consultant Colleague whom I have know for 20 years. Carl Shakespeare has an excellent bedside manner and his clinical opinion is highly respected. More recently I have been under his care as a patient and he has been outstanding in treating me. His has a very reassuring manner and takes time to explain the diagnosis management and treatment. Having referred friends and patients to him over the years I have always heard excellent feedback regarding his care.
