I received a warm welcome, my appointment was on time and my doctor clearly explained everything regarding my appointment and what would happen afterwards. I was made to feel very welcome and made sure I was understanding what was going on.
I paid for time and a professional psychiatric opinion and that is what I received. Dr Lynch had a good and respectful manner and kept on track during a thorough assessment.
