Aye I think he was Indian, seem to recall him being a pretty big fella, but everything seems big when yer a wean. He came up to oor hoose on a couple of occasions when a hud measles, chickenpox and aww the other stuff ye used to pick up fur free.

I remember the reception was jist as you went in the door on the left, a wee counter wi big filing cabinets ahint it. Also, there were long rows of an assortment of buggered up benchs and chairs, and when ye went it was always mobbed wi loads of crabbit auld wimen bitching about the price o' mince.

The place always stunk like an auld hospital, like bleach, dettol and some other noxious odours. There wus even spittons gracing the "Surgery". The only thing missing aff the bare floorboards was sawdust frea Wee Boabby the Butcher's across the Parade.

The receptionist then in late 50's ~ '71 was a wee wifie called Mrs Frasor, she moved to Taylor St flats much the same time we did, no long afore they flattened the surrounding area.

My Doctor was Dr Mc Niel (Homeopathic ) He took care of me all of my child and teenage years and then when I married took over the care of my husband .When my pregnancies began he would see me in his office but as my time came near he would come to the house to see me .With my last girl ,I was waiting for the coal man and finally went round to the wee shop round the corner and bought a ten pound bag of coal .I was carrying it back home when he arrived at my close .He promptly took the bag from my arms ,carried it up the stairs and sorted the fire out .He gave me a helluva telling off but could see why I needed the fire (DECEMBER ) .My daughter was born two days later .Can you imagine a Doctor in this day and age doing something like this ????
h


The McNeil's were our family doctor(s). If I mind right it was Hector and Hamish, father and then son... they were stalwarts of the Homeopathic Hospital on Gt Western Road. The father treated at least three generations of my family with me in the youngest generation... never saw the son myself as a patient, but my gran did in her later years as did my aunt. The old doc was a wonderful man.

Could it be the Surgery at the top of Maryhill Road near the old bus Station,? Ther'e's a park across the Street, My Mum use to take us kids there, and our Doctor was Dr.Smith,a Man there was also a lady Doctor can't recall her name.

Lennox

Lennox the lady doctor was Dr Robertson just incase you still dont know. She had her practice well into the 1970's ( maybe late 70's ) she was my doctor from infancy .The last time I saw her was to say goodby as a was leaving Glasgow, first she just looked down those glasses of hers and stared at me for a few minutes lol. Then she gave me a big hug as we parted, think a was her best customer.

Dr. Devine was my first doctor. He had a surgery on the street opposite the main gate of Fairfields. He came from a well to do family but choose to spend his whole life working among the poor of Govan. His name reflected his ethos. I believe he died rather young as he must have burnt himself out refusing no one treatment at any time. I dont believe in Heaven but there must be some eternal reward for this doctor.

Our doctors was on Maryhill Road, heading down the way from Kelvinside Avenue. I think it was near Pat's Pet Shop. There was the old doctor with silver hair (can't remember his name) and a Dr. Jamieson who frightened the life out of me. The waiting room had a couple of rows of wooden chairs. They looked like they'd been picked up from a antique shop. (Seen one in Habitat for 90 recently). So the idea was to shuffle along the chairs until you got to the doctor's surgery door. It was a gloomy room. As a child I always felt the doctor was going to hurt me instead of make me better. That was all down to Jamieson and his horrible manner.

When ah lived in Ruchazie and Cranhill, ma GP practice wis in Gilberfield Street - Dr. Davidson and two Dr. Jamiesons - father and son. The young Dr. Jamieson's ashtray used tae be littered wi fags (untipped in thae days) wi aboot 3 puffs taken ooty them then stubbed oot.
Ah remember the aulder Dr. Jamieson prescribin a mustard poultice fur wan o ma sisters who had pleurisy - ah think he must've done his trainin roon aboot 1895. biggrin.gif

Ma ain doctor wis Dr. Davidson - a good doctor and a gentleman tae boot.

our family doctor when I was a child growing up in Partick, was Dr. Cruickshanks, to me at that time she seemed an elderly woman but she was a nice lady although quite frumpy looking,but I understand ,she was a very good doctor but I am reminded of her when I watch the Actress
Margaret Rutherford in the movies she made,playing the part of
Agatha Christie's detective , "Miss Marples" smile.gif

Our family doctor was Dr. Henderson whose practice was in Apsley Sreet in Partick. He looked after me until my first pregnancy when he advised me to transfer to my husband's doctor as I was living in Pollokshields by that time. I did as he asked and went to Dr. Jubb through my other two babies until we came to Canada. His office was in his home in Shawlands. I used to push my babies in the pram and walk all the way from Giffnock to his surgery.
