    Miss Theresa Richardson put me at ease instantly with her kind manner and professionalism. It was such a relief to finally know what the lump on my eyelid was - skin cancer. The C word was a bit of a shocker, but Miss Richardson was so reassuring and made it clear that this is not the type of cancer that can affect organs in the body. She succinctly explained the MOHS procedure I needed, how it would be done, length of operation and healing time. She also spoke to me later that day which was so kind and helpful.
