All patient information is treated with the utmost regard to the patient privacy and confidentiality. No information is disposed of without first being shredded.

If the doctor is unable to attend the phone, he/she will return your call later the same day. The same applies to phone calls for other reasons. If a longer conversation is envisaged, patients are asked to make an appointment rather than a telephone call.
