"Geriatric Psychiatry"

About: Larkfield Unit

(as a carer),

My husband was referred to Geriatric Pyschiatry a few years ago. In February he was seen by a new Consultant Psychiatrist Dr Tayar who has taken a great deal of time to look at my husbands condition and medication and has discontinued 3 of his tablets the difference this has made to my husbands quality of life is amazing. My husband was unable to do his own personal care and was not able to go out on his own, since his medication has been stopped he is doing his own personal care with prompts and is able to go on the bus unaided. 

We cannot thank Dr Tayar enough for the care and dedication he has given my husband and myself. We certainly need more Dr's  like him.
