I was extremely nervous having the procedure undertaken during the Covid-19 pandemic but the care and treatment provided was excellent. Mr Crinnion explains things well and in a caring manner which puts you at ease. All in all I’m so pleased the surgery has now been done and I’m well on the way to recovery.
