I must say thank you so much for the excellent operation you performed on me, even though I still have a plaster cast on my arm the improvement I have is amazing.
I wish to express my gratitude & heartfelt thanks to Mr Narvin Verghese and his team for my recent operation.
What can I say to someone who took away a diabolical pain I had in my back for many years, also nerve pains in my legs and feet. 'Thank You' seems inadequate and does not in any way express my feelings of gratitude to you.
My Children have their Mum back as you have remedied my physical and mental wellbeing. So from the absolute bottom of our hearts THANK YOU!
A big thank you again for sorting out my life and my very best wishes for your continued success
A big thank you for taking care of my husband and making hist stay comfortable.
Life Changing - Job Saving. Thank you so very much
This is just a brief note to thank you and all your operating staff and Nurse T Jones for the professional care I recently received during my operation in Morriston Hospital. The result has been excellent with no pain in my legs. Our lives are now returning to normal. Once again, thank you.
