    It was an absolute pleasure to meet Lynn Stevenson. She immediately put me at ease when assessing me for a haemorrhoidectomy - I had been putting off the appointment for so long, but she made me wish I hadn't! She was fantastic on the day of surgery, and was very reassuring and kept me informed at all times. I'm so pleased with the results of the surgery, it has genuinely changed my life - I'm so glad I chose to visit Lynn!

    Dr Stevenson was great, she explained my issues and what was happening so clearly for me in the first consultation, operating day and close out consultation. I was a bit anxious for my first ever operation but she made me feel at ease and provided all the recovery information I needed.

    Explanation (5/5)
    Patient seen for:
    Dr. Stevenson is informative and very clear about your options! I was there for discomfort of fissure and hemorrhoids recurrent. She advised the fissures are not going away easily and require some lifestyle changes for the long term. With some helpful advice, like increasing fiber intake massively and sitz baths. I’m in comfort for a long time, no recurrent symptoms so far.
