“Mrs Hockey has turned my life around I had a very advanced prolapse that was affecting the quality of my everyday life. Mrs Hockey inspired me with confidence from the first consultation. I was surprised by the almost zero discomfort I experienced when I came around from surgery and in the weeks that followed. I attribute that to Mrs Hockey’s skill and expertise. I was quickly back on my feet and feeling better than I had for many months. You have restored my quality of, Thank You Mrs Hockey. “

    Bedside Manner (2/5)
    Explanation (2/5)
    The doctor was very friendly but the examination was extremely painful and I had bleeding following few days . No attempts were made to change body position or anything else that could have reduced pain during examination . Not enough questions were asked about my medical history prior to examination .

    Thankyou for raising this, I do hope we were able to address the concerns you had when you emailed after the examination and that you found the advice timely and useful which your reply seemed to indicate. I’m so sorry you were uncomfortable. Unfortunately there are no alternative positions for that examination, and given the level of discomfort we arranged further tests to investigate as this is not a usual finding. If you do have other concerns please do continue the correspondence that we were having to address this over the weekend.

    Patient seen for:
    Charming manner and confidence-inspiring. Procedure was carried out well and results were transmitted speedily. Visited after procedure to update me with findings and possible after effects. Unable to tell me roughly how long I would have to wait to be taken down to theatre and waited 4 hours with no updated information. It would have been good to have an idea from the nursing staff so that I could adjust my expectations accordingly.
