“We arrived early evening on a Saturday, we were greeted with a smile by the two wonderful ladies at the desk. Check-in was fast, and only waited a short time to be seen. Dr Townsend was great, went way above to make my three year comfortable . He had the best bedside manner that I have seen in a long time from medical professionals. I want thank the whole team for a visit my daughter really didn’t want to leave.” 5 Star Google Review, January 2020
