"Very reassuring doctor"

About: Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly

(as the patient),

I visited Gunnislake Health Centre as I had done my back in, and had pain for a few weeks. I was straining to go to the toilet and had bleeding from my back passage so needed an examination.

The service I received was superb. I was immediately seen, and the doctor who saw me, Dr Porter, was very professional and made the situation better than it could’ve been!

She explained everything well. The doctor diagnosed me as having a pile which resulted from my back pain. I was a bit embarrassed and was gurgling and burbling my way through but the doctor was very reassuring.
