    Patient seen for:
    It was a pleasure having Mr Scott to support and advise me throughout my treatment. Mr Scott was clear throughout the process, made me feel at ease and was fully transparent with my treatment and the course of action. I’m extremely happy with the overall outcome but even more so with the level of care Mr Scott afforded me.
