Very clear and helpful. I was concerned on the way in, but on the way out felt very clear about any issues I might have and what to look for and what to do in the future and why.
Dr Lee's kind, professional and patient centred approach ensured the best possible outcome. His sound clinical knowledge was evident, suggesting an allergy/ immunology assessment was required to get to the root cause of the symptoms. Very happy with your service. Thank you!!
