"My regular rheumatology care"

About: Western General Hospital / Rheumatology

(as the patient),

The rheumatology department at the Western General has been a place I have visited regularly since 2009. My consultant, Dr Amft, provides me with the highest level of care I could hope for. I have complete confidence in Dr Amft, who listens to me and involves me in decisions about my ongoing care.

It is apparent that Dr Amft is very busy on a day to day basis, yet always spends sufficient time with patients.

I want to voice my appreciation to Dr Amft and the team who do an excellent job.
