“Dr Martin saw me within the hour and was such a reassuring presence throughout. He was thorough in his questions and examination, and we left feeling hugely reassured, with a solid plan in place. He even called and emailed the next few days to see how things were going and follow up. Delighted with the care!“

    Dr Saweirs is a wonderful GP. From the warm greeting at the door, he took the time to get to know me and understand the issues I was going through. The regular email follow up was really thorough and I'm glad to have found a new GP for the future.

    I contacted Dr. Martin when I was very concerned about my health after seeing two of my NHS GP and I was told that there was nothing to worry about! That it was jus a cold! They were both wrong because my condition was getting worse that I decided to go on Internet and search for private health care. I chose Dr. Martin based on the different reviews I read about his services which would be unfair for me not to add my experience with Dr. Martin. First of all he has the time for the patient, he listens and he takes time to find out exactly what's wrong by looking into your healthy history and the people you have been in contact with in the past few weeks. Anyway in the end he found that I had tonsillitis not cold or thrush that was diagnosed by my GP. He gave me treatment and my problem is over now. What fascinated me, I couldn't find the place, called him, he personally came out to look out for me! Very unusual how he cares about his patients! I have made him my private GP for sure! He connects with his patients and very good listener.

    Thank you for leaving such a lovely review, and for coming to see me! Glad we got it all sorted and call on me again for anything in future, best wishes, Martin Saweirs

    I visited Dr Martin for a on-going bad cold. I'm from the US and working in the UK, so didn't really know where to go or how the health-care industry works here. The process was thoroughly explained. My office visit was good and thorough. He is very kind and personable.

    Dr Martin Saweirs

    I'm really glad it was a smooth process for you and I hope you felt better quickly! Best wishes, Dr Martin Saweirs

    Dr Saweirs was extremely amenable, quick to find an appointment that worked for both of us and efficient with his diagnosis. He has a friendly, professional manner. I felt I was in a pair of safe hands -- I was fluey and feeling horrible. He helped speed up my recovery and checked up on me after the appointment to make sure I was feeling better.

    Dr Martin Saweirs

    Thank you very much for the kind review. I always think it's important to make people feel comfortable and well looked after, and I was delighted to hear your recovery was well underway. Kind regards, Dr Martin Saweirs

    Dr Martin Saweirs is a truly excellent clinician and general practitioner. As a local dietitian, it can be very hard to find private doctors that go the extra mile and are affordable. Dr Saweirs is so rapid to respond to patient needs, resourceful, has unique additional training and will see patients at home or their hotel if staying locally. He is very much among my 'trusted book' of doctors and comes highly recommended.

    I have known Martin for many years since he was a GP in training working his paediatric placement when I was his supervisor. He is a truly special doctor, offering his patients access, time, empathy and compassion, not to mention his excellent clinical acumen. I refer many of my own private patients and their families to him for their holistic primary care needs and they have all been thrilled to have found him. The word recommend underplays how strongly I feel about my view of Martin.
