    Overall Experience (5/5)
    Bedside Manner (5/5)
    Explanation (5/5)
    Very positive experience, within in a few minutes of consultation, Doctor Turner ran a few tests and diagnosed the source of my medical issue. The key part being that he asked a few key questions on my medical history and nature of current issue, and used this to guide some simple physical tests. The test conducted was able to induce the symptoms being experienced and identify the source of the problem, which all linked back to an old head trauma we had discussed in the consultation. It also alleviated concerns I had that the issue may be symptom of a more serious medical condition I have.
