"Great care and treatment"

About: General practices in Dumfries and Galloway

(as the patient),

I have been a patient at Dr Oliver and Partners for many years and, thankfully, rarely have to use the service. I recently had to attend an appointment after many years of not having to be seen so I was slightly nervous. Everyone from the reception staff to the GP could not have been friendlier. I was made to feel relaxed and that my GP was happy to listen.
