Absolutely fantastic experience. Dr. Joanne Rimmer was supportive and knew exactly what she was talking about. She was professional and caring. I have a lot of anxiety with my health and procedures and I would be requesting her if I ever needed to go back. She also explained everything to me in a way I would understand and made sure I felt welcomed back if ever required.
