Our patients say . . .
A quick note to say thank you for my cholecystectomy – absolutely brilliant.
Further to surgery to remove my gallbladder. I am writing to say a grateful thank you. I returned to work after two weeks, and free of the frightening pain that I had been experiencing prior to surgery and am just feeing so much better!
After nearly four years of pain and sickness every time I ate or drank, I can now do both normally without any sign of pain or sickness at all. It has made a tremendous difference to my life.
Many thanks for all your care, kindness and attention during my recent gallbladder problems.
My husband and I would like to thank you for all you effort curing my hernia problem … my breathing is much improved. I look forward to a much better quality of life.
Thank you so much for giving me back the enjoyment of eating and drinking everything again. For so long my acid reflux has dominated my life, making it rather miserable at times but since my operation I am one hundred per cent better and can’t believe the difference it has made, it’s just wonderful.
I just want to say a huge BIG thank you to for doing my hiatus hernia operation – I feel like a new person and am so grateful for all your care and consideration that has made such a difference for me.
You were so very kind and patient listening to my doubts, and although I know that I had to make the decision myself, you said just enough to enable me to make the right one.
I must tell you how wonderful it is not to suffer constant acid reflux anymore it’s amazing. Thank you for everything.
I have no acid reflux problems and it has made such a difference for my lifestyle. Thank you very, very much for all that you have done for me.
