Professional Type 1 diabetes care, great sense of humor, enjoyable conversation, personal experience, resulting in an easy transition to this centre for my son. Diabetes Educator Sarah Free, absolute pleasure for my son to converse with, up to date knowledge, passion and humor make for a very informative rewarding visit. Dr Bruce Chadfield Type 1 diabetic. His experience obvious when diagnosing new and reviewing existing medical issues quickly, to enable easier management of diabetes. What a great role model for my son. Who now confidently manages his own Type 1 diabetes and looks forward to his very enjoyable visits. A wonderful experience. High recommendation.
Our family has been attending this clinic for many years now. We do not live anywhere near this area but we always make the trip because their service is worth it.
The receptionists are always very friendly and kind. We have always dealt with Dr. Chadfield and found him to be one of the most professional and knowledgeable practitioners we have had the pleasure to see. We can not recommend him as well as Dr. Heifm highly enough!
Thank you for always taking care of us.
Ive been using this practice for about 6 months and Im quite happy with it. Bulk billing service is great as I dont have to worry about money when I visit the doctors. The receptionists are very kind, helpful and polite. Normally waiting time is acceptable between non to 15minutes. Ive only seen the 2 lady doctors and they are both nice and knowledgeable. Id recommend this practice if you are tight with money but want a decent service and a good GP. 4.5 stars from me because I still havent felt personally cared for from the doctors. But other than that its perfect!
