Practices worked at
- Dr O'Reilly offers 'face to face' appointments for new and follow up patients. These are available at the Spire Lea and Nuffield hospitals in Cambridge and the BMI hospitals in Bury St Edmunds and Bedford.
- All appointments, new and old, are booked at 1 hour intervals so there is plenty of time for assemment and then explanation of findings.
- Video consultations are still available and the timing of appointments is very flexible. These are best for 'follow up' appointments to discuss test results, response to treatment etc
- Most medical insurance companies have approved video consultations, however insured patients should confirm these appointments with their insurers beforehand.
Enquires about appointments can be emailed to Dr D O’Reilly directly via the contact page at RheumatologyUK.com or at firstname.lastname@example.org
