Dr Ramnarine has committed to working at Veincentre Bristol on a Tuesday. If you book an initial consultation with Dr Ramnarine in Bristol, all your future appointments will be with Dr Ramnarine in Bristol. As such, it is important to note that if you opt to go ahead with treatment this will be undertaken with Dr Ramnarine on a Tuesday (as will all future follow-up appointments).
Occasionally Dr Ramnarine may open up a list on another day, especially during our busy periods, however, we cannot guarantee appointment dates on any other day than a Tuesday even if a previous appointment was on a different day. If you are unable to attend one of Dr Ramnarine’s dates and hence wish to switch consultants, you will need to attend and pay for a new consultation with the other consultant before any treatment being undertaken. Please take care when choosing which consultant/ date to book.
Please note that due to holidays Dr Ramnarine may not be available every Tuesday.
