Have you worked with this specialist?
Mr Dawson has been a valued colleague for a number of years. He has referred a number of patients to me for specialist care. In every case he has carried out the early investigation and management of these patients to the highest level of competency and care, and I have always been able to discharge our mutual patients back to his care in the knowledge that they are in very good hands. The feedback from our shared care patients is that Mr Dawson is a trusted and caring surgeon who puts their interests at the centre of their care.
