Very professional approach but feels at ease

Sent by my GP 3 years ago as had suspected Diabetes, and he recommended Dr. Smith as best. All staff and techs were very professional, at pains to put me at ease and explain reason for each test. Dr. had all results a photos for my exam. Rechecked some areas, good diagnostition, great relaxing manner and took time to explain/discuss all facts and my questions. No less than Excellent
