    correct tenses

    Hi,
    I would like to know if I have chosen the correct tenses in the following text:

    Doctor Mark Pemberton, who has just taken over a medical practice in rural Suffolk, visited a 74-year-old widow in the village of Nacton. She has been bedridden for 40 years. The doctor examined her but couldn’t find anything wrong.

    Thank you in advance.

    To me the application of various tense forms seem quite ok and natural.
