Working in partnership with patients

As a Specialist General Practitioner, Dr Suresh prides himself on delivering high-quality care and is keen to work in partnership with his patients. He believes that the key to providing good quality, long-lasting healthcare, is to work in partnership with his patients and to provide education and information to help his patients make informed decisions.

This helps empower you to look after your own health as much as possible and be able to make decisions on your care.

Dr Suresh is a big believer in having the patients in the driving seat, being responsible for their care, and make decisions about themselves.

As he says, “no decision about you, without you”
