Mark was fantastic. From my initial consultation with him, to how he looked after me and other patients on the day, putting me at ease and answered all questions I had. Also a shout out to the team who were there during the procedure and the lady who patted my hand after the procedure to check I was ok and held my hand to lead me out to the recovery area. An extra nice touch I felt, was that Mark was the emergency contact number you are given and even though I had no concerns, Mark sent me a message the evening after my procedure, just to see how I was getting on.
