He took the time to explain my condition to me with the help of a diagram and detailed the next steps - follow up in three months, exercises to do and possible surgery if still no improvement His nurse was also friendly helpful and kind. the whole experience on 7th July was really great - my appointment was at 11.30, was sent to have my x-ray, came back to the department, was seen promptly and was finished by 12.30 all round a great experience at City Road Hospital and the Oral department Thank you for making this a great appointment Viv F “
