Testimonials

Cornelia

I went for a check-up here for the first time last summer after usually going to one of the bigger competitors. Some of my friends said they wouldn’t go anywhere else. The reception staff were so friendly and helpful. I asked to see Charlotte as I had met her many years ago. A familiar face is always comforting. I can honestly say that I have never had such a thorough check up ever. Thank you! I have recommended Patrick and Menzies to a few people. I know two have seen Charlotte and I know more will follow.

Bea

 It has been five years since l registered my girls at this practice, l/we haven’t looked back, the service is second to none.

Helen

Had my first eye test in many years today, absolutely first class, lovely staff, why go anywhere else when it’s on the doorstep.
