Dr Whitely is a very pleasent and funny person whom, was able, through his chatting, to take my mind of the procedure. It was very reassuring.
I imagine Professor Whiteley puts everyone at ease. He is very professional and calm, explaining everything, but also very jovial with lots of interesting conversation that helps with putting you at ease and keeping you (the patient) distracted from the procedure
Great to chat to while under the knife!
