"He has been brilliant (as have other doctors at the same group but him in particular) with my fibro treatment. For all medical issues in fact they listen and involve you in treatment discussion, explain things clearly and are happy to discuss suggestions I have come across on online fibro support groups like your own. He has been great with helping me trial different medications and there has never been any question about whether I need it or not. He understands that in many ways I understand my condition and treatment better than he does as I keep up to date on medical papers which are published and latest research etc, and does not been to be put out by this at all but is always happy to listen and duscuss."
