Dr Raj Srirajaskanthan has been brilliant. Very welcoming and understanding of my desire to understand the cause of my bleeding. He was very supportinve during the initial consultation as well as on the day of the procedure. The procedure was executed well, it was thorough, the sedation was very appropriate and I was in only very minimal discomfort. I can't think of anything that could be done better.
