Fantastic as always. There is no better general practitioner doctor than Cathy Munro. Attentive, personable, talks thoroughly and answers all questions, doesn't rush me, genuinely concerned about me, really knows her stuff. Takes her time on every issue. She recaps everything we talked about at the end of the appointment and makes sure I have paperwork to remind me once gone.

Dr Munro is distinctive in that she looks you in the eye and does a careful clinical evaluation.She starts with a conservative solution, rather than going straight to surgery or drugs.
