“I am unfamiliar with accessing private healthcare and I found Dr Ali's warm welcome very reassuring. Dr Ali is a good listener and took lots of notes, so he was able to reflect back to me and demonstrate that he had fully understood my concerns and case history. The physical examination was thorough but performed in a non-intrusive way and I felt that all physical signs had been seen and taken into consideration, even some that I was not aware of previously. I received a full explanation of the proposed course of treatment and next steps and I had the opportunity to ask additional questions.“
