Dr. Hyland and Dr. Hyland, a husband and wife team of doctors who practiced on the Crumlin Road, just above the Crumlin Picture House. The surgery was in their home, the waiting room was their front parlor.
No receptionist or nurse. A buzzer rang and the next patient went back to see the doctor. Simpler times.
Hello  Cully, ( anything to  Billy Cully an old time glazier) anyway, the largest 'practice' was that of  Robert Caldwell, 100, York Street . :)

Hi tboy, sorry, no relationship  to Billy. My grandparents were dead before I was born, my dad had no brothers. He did have two sisters, one of whom married, and one who didn't, so there were very few of us Cullys around.

Sandymc, I remember Dr Denny's voice as being quite deep.  I don't know where he did his medical degree I'm afraid, but my mum trusted him implicitly.  I mentioned Garnett Denny, the boxer, and I mistakenly said he was Dr Denny's brother, but he was actually his son.  Dr Denny's partner was Dr Gilmore when we left Belfast in 1967 and when I returned on holiday from Oz in 1973, I saw Dr Gilmore for removal of stitches.  He was then situated on My Lady's Road.

My Doctors were Dr Campbell and McHugh, they were lovely men....They were on Divis St, you didn't need an appointment you just went in and took your turn...They knew you and all about you....Not like now...
McNamee did they take over from Dr Gibson and Dr Mulveney or was it Mac Eleveney not sure of the spelling they where next to the school St Comgal's back in the say ..

I don't think they took over from Dr Gibson....Dr Campbell had his surgery between Gilford Street and Ardmoulin Street.

Dr O'Gorman and Dr Murray. Oldpark Road... Luckily didn't have to go too much... But I seem to remember shuffling round the room on the chairs... No appointments. You just waited.
