    Dr Jose put me at ease immediately and listened carefully to my history. He was thorough in his questioning and I felt he did not leave any stone unturned. Additionally he was warm and professional in his manner and most importantly, discussed the issues with me rather than at me. Investigations were arranged in a timely manner. Overall I was extremely pleased with how Dr Jose dealt with everything and I would thoroughly recommend him to others.
