Letter to Dr. Simon Farmer, Consultant Neurologist at the Queen Square Private Consulting Rooms

I would like to highlight the excellent care both clinically and personally that I received from Dr Farmer during a scary time. I myself am a doctor and I cannot fault the service I received and only have praise for it. I am deeply grateful to Dr Farmer and the team in Queen Square who have provided me with excellent care.
