    I came to see Mr Rainsbury for a second opinion. It was the best decision I could have made. He listened to my concerns and took into account a holistic approach and respected my own views. During the examination, he was extremely gentle and allowed me to breath through the nose examination with cameras. His knowledge assured me and I was able to decide with his advice how to go forward. In all, I was delighted to have made the effort of seeking a second opinion.
