In closing please note that this in no way reflects on any person(s) and in fact our current family doctor, specialist and surgeon (and their staffs) are “life savers” in our opinion. There is a concern that patients may go away thinking they are fine when in fact that may not be the case. Our medical professionals are extremely busy and often overworked. As stated often in CAP always seek professional medical help.
