    Patience and understanding in dealing with my anxiety related to the surgery. Left the hospital and the whole process relaxed and reassured that I had been in the safest and most knowledgeable hands for my gallbladder removal. I felt listened to and received appropriate advice pre and post surgery. In addition, the correspondence was prompt, clear and professional. Thank you Dr Moorthy
