    Explanation (5/5)
    Mr Haq explained the procedure that I had, with clarity and detail, ensuring I was aware of what might / might not happen. At all times I felt that he had my best intersts at the forefront of his treatment. In the circumstamces of my operation I felt as safe and comfortable as could be possible. Mr Haq kept myself amd my partner up to date at all times with all aspects of my operation and subsequent aftercare. This involved telephone comversations to my home in the evenings.
