I found the service received was excellent on the day of my procedure staff were lovely and could not do enough for you. The only complaint I have was the mx up of an appointment I was supposed to have on 12 June which I never received notification of.

Very welcoming and professional, speaks in terms that I understood and put me at ease, honest in his approach, in that, if he thinks an operation will ensure better health on outcome, he will say so and if not he will tell you straight. no false promises.
