    Bedside Manner

    Explanation
    (5/5)
    I cannot recommend Dr Fara more highly. He has a very amiable and approachable manner, takes the time to carefully review and listen to the patient's complete history, asks interesting questions to refine the likely root of symptoms, explains the tests he will conduct and what they may rule out/in, spots issues you didn't een know you had (like osteoarthritis) - reassures you that they may not be chronic - and speaks in terms you can (largely) understand and follow. He is proactive and where next steps in the recommended programme can be immediately dealt with, they are - like blood tests for example. He has a reassuring demeanour, explains simply what he is ruling in and out, and what his proposed plan of action is and what it may achieve.
