    It was extremely good - Mr Lindfield lived up to his reputation of being excellent in his field. I would recommend him without hesitation. The only thing I would like to have had explained, was potential future costs that I might incur after the operation. His PA Emily was so helpful and extremely well informed at all times. They make a great team.
