I was given a bad assessment by my GP and given a prescription that did nothing. However once I saw Dr Ramsay he assured me that my prognosis was not so bad and gave me the correct drugs and within days I was feeling much better. Nice guy and approachable

I was extremely pleased with how Dr. Ramsay dealt with my problem, which my GP had been unable to solve for over a year. In addition the GP had not picket up the problem which had already been drawn to their attention from a previous scan.
