Being able to get appointment sooner

To be able to see a doctor more quickly and not too have to wait a week

Able to get appointments on the same day

Sometimes struggle to get appointments

Perhaps a more patient friendly Receptionist when ringing in for an appointment (Bean)

Improvements and changes are the best that can be expected taking into account the cramped conditions and the lack consulting rooms and office space. Staff should be complimented on the results they achieve under very difficult circumstances.

Improvements are difficult given the lack of additional room. The very best is made out of what is available.

More understanding Doctors

Can’t think of any

Like to get through the line a bit quicker

To be able to get appointment sooner than 8 days

A female doctor in addition to the current doctors

Larger premises with more parking.

More appointments

Dr Bora’s nameplate at the Entrance. More professional look for posters and notices in the waiting room.

Keep windows free from homemade information posters except surgery times at the entrance door. Add information to the rolling electronic display

I think the practice works very well as it is

An old proverb – If it isn’t broken, don’t fix it

Good across the board, don’t need to change
