    From initially booking my consultation right through to meeting up with Professor Molata I have had a very positive experience. Michele, his secretary has been wonderful at communicating and booking my appointments. Professor Molata did not dissapoint, he was thorough, empathetic and explained my options well. I have to also mention the nurse who was friendly and put me completly at ease. So far a very positive experience and I would recommend people to have a consultation with Professor Molata. I am awaiting a quotation from the hospital but hope to proceed with my surgery once this has been received.
