Joanne has worked at this clinic for over 5 years. She has over 16 years experience of Office MOA Administration experience. She also has a psychiatric nursing background. She tries to make patients feel at ease as well as making every attempt to accommodate patient's needs with respect to appointment availability.
She is great at giving patient's support when needed during exams and is a "great hand holder!" We have tried to make our surroundings comfortable and relaxing; Joanne's lovely smile, pleasant personality, and demeanour help considerably.
Smiles and hugs are free, no need to ask!
