My experience was excellent. Kind and caring no waiting.
The whole of the last 18 months consultations & diagnosing process has been exceptional.
Thoroughly professional in all regards. Very caring manner - really gave impression that he was listening attentively and was responding directly to my concerns. Demonstrated in-depth knowledge and understanding of the issue and communicated this clearly and effectively to me with clear advice for me to consider. Was very patient and helpful. Would recommend without hesitation.
Clearly took me through the possible diagnoses, the likelihood of each and the tests needed to complete any diagnostic process. All done in a friendly and approachable manner.
Dr Bates was really friendly and considerate. He explained everything in detail and he was very thorough, I got a lot from the consultation and wouldn't hesitate to see him again if needed.
Dr. Bates is very skilled and gives evidence based advice which is always of the highest order. He explains complex matters in a way I can understand and always listens to any concerns I have.
Dr Bates is very polite and professional. At my consultation he explained things thoroughly and advised me appropriately and put my mind at ease.
I have been type2 diabetic for18 years doctor Bates has been my consultant all that time. I cannot speak too highly of him at every level. Because of his expertise I have never had any problems whatsoever.
I asked Dr Bates questions and he responded thoroughly by detailing the tests that may be of benefit. I felt my concerns were addressed and dealt with in a friendly manner.
Excellent support and advice provided. I feel confident about the planned procedures and had plenty of time to ask questions.
My consultation with Andrew was very smooth and I was very pleased with it. There was a clear structure to the meeting and it flowed very easily. Andrew asked all the relevant questions to gather the required information to try and diagnose my condition. He was also very clear with answers to any of my questions or concerns and made sure I understood everything discussed in the consultation. At the end of the meeting we discussed the next steps and potential outcomes, so I was clear of the road ahead. I would highly recommend Andrew and hopefully we can diagnose and treat my condition quickly in the near future.
I have been seeing Dr Bates twice a year for the best part of twenty years, I have always found him punctual, polite, helpful and very knowledgeable certainly with my medication. On my own admittance I am not an easy patient I am on a fairly large cocktail of tablets which he has to juggle to keep me fit and healthy he manages to do this on a regular basis He is always available if I wish to speak to him outside of normal appointments which I find very reassuring if I ever encounter any problems
Dr Bates was very friendly. He was thorough and very reassuring.
