What my patients have said ...

Just a small note to say an enormous thank you for all you have done for me over the past two and half months. It was your calming approach, gentle manner and patience that got me into the theatre and then your exemplary skill as a surgeon that did the rest. You do a fantastic job and may you have continued success and always enjoy good health in what you do.
